All creatures now are merry-minded John Bennet Come again ! sweet love doth now invite Dowland
JOHN BENNET , the only composer in this programme of English music for voices of whose career listeners have not already been told, is one of whom we know very little apart from his music. Our only clue as to the date of his birth is on the title page of his ' Madrigalls to Foure Voyces,' which appeared in 1599. He calls them ' first fruits of my simple skill,' and later, ' indeauors of a young wit.' Five years later he contributed five tunes to Barley's Psalter, and when these were reprinted in Ravenscroft's Psalter in 1621, there was a pleasing reference to Bennet in the preface :
' Maister lohn Bennet, a Gentleman admirable for all kindes of Composures, either in Art, or Ayre, Simple or Mixt, of what Nature soeuer. I can easily belieue he had somewhat more then Art, euen some Naturall instinct or Better Inspiration, by which, in all his workes, the very life of that Passion, which the Ditty sounded, is so truely exprest, as if we had measured it alone by his owne Soule, and inuented no other Harmony, then his owne sensible, feeling in that Affection did affoord him.'
Ho contributed a number of Madrigals to the ' Triumphes of Oriana,' tho most popular of which is probably ' Weep, 0 mine eyes.' . But they are all simple and melodious in character, and finished with fine workmanship, although such big men as Weelkes and Morley outstripped him in originality.
The Madrigal in this programme is the fourth in the series ' The Triumphes of Oriana,' published in 1601.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
