: The Rev. M. R. RIDLEY: ' Poetry and the Ordinary Reader'—II

THE constant broadcasting of poetry has made it clear to many, who never realized it before, that poetry is essentially meant to be heard as well as seen. Poetry, in fact, has its roots in the spoken word : the written word is only a moans of saving poetry from the oblivion of time. No small part of the appeal of poetry is in the very sound, and Mr. Ridley's second ta!k will consider, among other kindred aspects of the subject, how poetry may best be road.

THE SteUa-Mary Dances were written in memory of the composer's daughter who died on May 30, 1917, in her thirteenth year. For the passing of a young and beautiful life the gloom of funeral music seems unsuitable, and this wish to preservo a happier and more vivid remembrance of a vanished child-presence is expressed in these dances and in a short series of poems, ' Songs in Memory of Stella-Mary Austin,' written by her father. It is not possible to quote the verses here in full, but the following lines show that their author contemplated some musical memorial to the daughter he had lost:
' Now would I keep her living,
Imprisoned in bars of tone ' and again :
' You were music to my eyes !
And music to the lips! '
Music, from your ribbon'd hair,
To your dainty finger tips ! '

THIS, one of the most popular stage pieces with music which the English theatre has ever known. is not an opera in the ordinary sense. The book was made by John Gay , and the music consisted of popular ballads of the time, some seventy of them, which were fitted to the text by Dr. Pepusch, a leading London musician of his day. The opera had a long and successful run when il first appeared, and has been so often revivec since, that only short periods have elapsed when it was not or the stage somewhere.
Fcederic Austin, who is responsible for the brilliantly successful arrangement of the opera known to the present generation, has had an unusually, varied career. Making his reputation first as a cultured baritone singer, he has been an organist, conductor, director of the British National Opera Company, as well as of other important musical undertakings
His successes in all those directions have tended ratheij to overshadow his gifts as composer, but in that sphere] too, he has done really dis-j tinguished work.

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.
