ENGLISH SONGS FROM THE TWELFTH TO THE TWENTIETH CENTURY
Sung by JOHN MOREL
Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries
Arne (1710-1778), When the Heart is at ease Storaee (1763-1790),
Canzonet Hatton (1809-1886), Simon the Cellarer Loder (1813-1805), I heard a Brooklet Sullivan (18-42-1000), Gone l'anv (1848-1918), And yet I Jove her
Stanford (1852-1921). Bold, unbiddable Child
FOR reasons which there is no space to set down here, England, from the death of Purcell, in 1695, entered the most unproductive era of her musical history. Pleasing tunefulness is the keynote of the bulk of the published works of the eighteenth century. The four outstanding composers of song in the eighteenth century were Arno, Boyco, Shield,' and Storaee, of whom the foremost was Arne. It was a patriotic song era. Arne wrote ' Rule, Britannia,' of which Southey said : ' It will be the political hymn of this country as long as- she maintains her political power.' Boyce wrote ' Heart of Oak' to Garrick's words (' Come, cheer up, my lads ') in 1759. The well-known ' Drink to me only ' belongs to the mid-eighteenth century-composer still unknown, words by Ben Jonson. But with such rare exceptions, song was at a standstill from 1700 until the latter nineteenth century, where the threads wore taken up again by a group of composers, of whom Parry and Stanford were the acknowledged pioneers and leaders.

BENNO MOISEIWITSCH was only nine years old when he won the Rubinstein prize for pianoforte playing, as a pupil of the Imperial
Academy of Music in his native city of Odessa. But he was wise enough not to let that early success launch him on the career of a child prodigy ; for five years more ho continued his studies there, going at the age of fourteen to-Losehetizky in Vienna.
Ho made his first appearance in England four years later-at Reading—and when, in the following spring (1909) he played at a Queen's Hall Concert in London, his successwas immediate Since then, he has won a distinguished place among the foremost pianists of today.
QTUART ROBERTSON began his musical career at a very early age as one of the Children of His Majesty's Chapels Royal : lie was a solo chorister. How well ho turned that early experience to account needs no emphasizing now ; his position as one of our most popular singers is firmly assured, and there can be but few of the principal concert societies in London, and, indeed, throughout Britain, for whom he has not sung with success. Ho attributes a large share of his popularity to the gramophone and tp broadcasting ; both have helped to make his singing known in many distant parts of the world. But he has himself appeared as far from home as Australia. When Dame Nellie Melba was organizing her farewell tour of her own country she selected Stuart Robertson as the only other singer to be one of the party, and her choice was amply justified by the welcome which was everywhere given him. She predicted a brilliant career for him then already-in 1927.

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.
