: SONGS BY LIZA LEHMANN

sung by Freda Townson (contralto)
The woodpigeon The owl
Lovers in the lane
If no one ever marries me If I built a world for you Thoughts have wings
Everybody who is fond of singing knows the song ' 0 tell me, nightingale ' and the song-cycle ' In a Persian Garden ', but few remember the composer of these as one of the leading sopranos of the closing years of the last century.
Born in London in 1862 of an artistic and intellectual family, Liza Lehmann studied singing with many masters, and during her public career of ten years she rose to the top of her profession. In 1894 she married Herbert Bedford , the composer, abandoned the concert platform, and devoted herself to composition. At the end of two years' study she amazed her friends by producing her first and most famous song-cycle, ' In a Persian Garden '.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
