MANY composers, old and new, have set
Herrick's simple little song of the lady whom ' I did but see ... passing by, And yet I love her till I die.' The most popular setting is that known as Passing By, by someone who bears the great name of Purcell. Here is a setting by one of the most remarkable of our younger contemporaries, Peter Warlock , who ' in real life ' is Philip Heseltine , composer, musical author, and journalist.
MAURICE BESLY, composer of Weathers, was born. at Normanby, Yorkshire, thirty-eight years ago. He was for some time organist of Queen's College, Oxford, and is well known as an orchestral conductor.
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.
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.
