: Church Cantata (No. 82) Bach

'Ich habe genug'
('It is enough')
Relayed from The Guildhall School Of Music
The Wireless String Orchestra
Conducted by Stanford Robinson

No. 1. Aria:
It is enough. For now with mine eyes have I seen Thy salvation, Which Thou hast prepared for our consolation. He is the Redeemer and Saviour. Thy word I believe, And trusting Thy promise, my heart is at rest. Today should'st Thou call me, with gladness would I take my departure. It is enough.

No. 2. Recitative and Arioso:
It is enough! My trust is in the Lord, I know that He is mine, and I would be with Him; His promise I believe; thus shall I share with Simeon the joy of everlasting life, and in that hope shall I depart! For all the sins and errors of my life, dear Lord forgive me, Ah! in Thy mercy is my hope; with joy I bid the world farewell; It is enough!

No. 3. Aria:
Slumber on. Oh weary spirit softly calmly, take thy rest. World, farewell, no longer here I stay where my soul no peace can find, nought but sorrow, pain and anguish compass me about on ev'ry side. Here I must in sadness languish, but I know on my beloved Saviour's bosom there is rest.

No. 4. Recitative and Arioso:
My God! O let me now depart, My troubles o'er, my journey ended, In the cool earth let me be laid, the gentle earth from which I came. My farewell now is spoken.
World! good night.

No. 5. Aria:
With gladness will I now depart. My work is done, my journey ended. Therefore with joy I will depart.
My glad heart with joy shall sing, When I cast off the bonds which bind me.

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.

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.
