MISCELLANEOUS SONGS OF SCHUBERT
Sung by ANNE TRURSFIELD (Soprano)
Dass sie hior gewesen
Geheimes Schafera Klagelied
Himmelsfunken Der Blumonbrief
Versunken
THERE is nothing irreverent here in the use of this commonplace word ' miscellaneous ' ; it means only that the songs, all of them among mankind's treasures of music, are not taken from one or other of the groups or cycles through which a sort of connecting story runs. Each one is a separate thing. And in his choice of lyrics to set to music, Schubert often showed such a careless disregard for their poetic qualities, or lack of these, that the word is quite just.
Listeners are apt to complain, sometimes with justice, that it is difficult to hear the words of broadcast songs. They ought to be heard, of course ; a song should be a complete thing in which poetry and music are partners. But in the case of some of Schubert's songs it does not matter much whether tho words are heard or not; the tunes are of themselves so good to hear as to be more than worth while merely as tunes. And, as everybody knows, Schubert is one of the few great masters of music whose tunes are popular in the right sense of the word-that everybody knows and likes them.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
