Ecco. Silvio. Madrigal in five parts for five voices, sung by the BBC Singers : conductor, Leslie Woodgate
Ecco Silvio (Part one)
Ma se con la Pieta (Part two) Dorinda, ah diro (Part three) Ecco piegando (Part four) Ferir que! petto (Part five)
(Edited by Malipiero)
In addition to being a master of the traditional forms and technique of composition. Claudio Monteverdi '(1567-1643) was a great innovator-, for he introduced a new conception of harmony and of instrumentation, chiefly in opera, of which he was the founder of the modern school. ' Ecco Silvio a a madrigal in five parts from Guarini's ' Pastor Fido ', comes from the fifth book of his madrigals, in which he introduces some of his new ideas : the style of the writing is more dramatic-even operatic, for the character of the aria with its recitative is present — -.and for the first time a figured bass for filling in the harmonies on a lute, harpsichord, *or organ is added to the vocal parts.

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.

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.
