WHILE many of the songs which wore popular in the end of last century have completely vanished from concert platform and from drawing-room, there are several by Maud Valerie White which seem destined to keep their hold on the affections of listeners and singers. And their popularity is in every way worthily earned. They not only choose poetry which is usually far above the standard of the ordinary verse which composers sot to music, but they treat it with a poet's regard not only for its beauty of sound, but for its meaning. Her settings of lyrics by Herrick and Shelley, for instance, are admirably adapted, in one case to the old-fashioned turns of thought and phrase, and in the other to the passionate sentiment of the words. ' My soul is an enchanted boat,' to name only one instanco, is a really poetic pioco of music.
A former holder of the Mendelssohn's scholar- ship of the Royal Academy of Music, Miss White is equally at home in French and in German poetry, as many of her settings of Heine, Victor Hugo , and Schiller amply testify. And she has composed in larger forms, too, although it is mainly by her songs that she has won so secure a place in the music of our time.

Sir HAMILTON HARTY 's Overture is among the most important contributions which Britain has made to contemporary European music. Light-hearted in character, it never loses sight of the dignity which may well go hand in hand with laughter, and with that dainty grace and freshness of which all really English music is eloquent. Remembering Sir Hamilton Harty 's brilliant achievements as conductor, it hardly needs mention that the work is characterized by a confident mastery of his medium, and that its effects are made with that certainty which betrays a skilled hand.

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.
