SONGS BY LUTENIST Com
POSERS
Sung by HERBERT HEYNER
(Baritone)
TOBIAS HUME 'S song comes from a mixed set of vocal and string pieces, called Musicall Humors. This one sings the praises of tobacco, and makes some quaint comparisons between it and love.
' Is it a forgery ? How often has this query been anxiously asked, and how difficult it is, as a rule, to answer it. In his talk at 9.15 this evening Mr. Robert Saudek will have much of interest to say on this intriguing question.
GREAVES' song draws a pretty picture of Celestina singing and playing under the olive trees.
BARTLETT celebrates in the first of his Bsongs the beauties of a lady, ' The fairest of her days,' and in the next he sets a verse of George Peele , inquiring what is love, smartly answering that it is a sting, a fire ; summing up that ' love's darling lies in ladies' eyes.'
Of his other two songs, Whither runneth is a gay impression of a coy maid and her suitor playing at catch. The last song is in very different mood. The lover has found the lass faithless. She pretended to be serious, and now says she never was in earnest. ' Like feathers in the wind '—thus he dismisses female promises.
A NOTHER of Peele's poems is set by Dowland. It tells of the beauty of old age. Its thought is
Beauty, strength, youth arp flowers but fadins seen,
Duty, faith, love are roots and ever green.
ROSSETER'S song complains of women's inconstancy. ' I was thus unhappy born, and ordained to be her scorn,' laments the lover, though he cherishes still a hope that she may repent.

: AN ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

ALICE LILLEY (Soprano)
THE VVIRELESS ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOHN ANSELL
THE Overture to a Comedy was not written
for a stage work. It is a' Concert Overture,' full of the spirit of gaiety, with themes now lyrical, now capricious, that blend into a genial and spirited work.
VICTOR HERBERT , born in 1859, is a grandson of the Irishman, Samuel Lover , who wrote ' Handy Andy.' He was for some years a leading violoncello player. He has written nearly forty stage works, most of 'them light operas.
POLYEUCTE. an Opera based on Corneille's tragedy of the Roman centurion - martyr, was produced in Paris half a century ago, when its composer was sixty. It was one of his favourite works ; shortly before he died he said that even if his other operas, Faust included, were to perish, he wished that Polyeucte might live and succeed. His hope was never gratified, for Polyeucte has not kept in the repertory. The Ballet is amongst the best of its music.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
