The Magic Goblet (The Luck of Edenhall)
(First Performance)
Graceful Dance (Old English Dances, Rustic Dance, First Set)
SIR FREDERIC COWEN 'S latest orchestral work, 'The Magic Goblet', is founded on Longfellow's poem called 'The Luck of Edenhall'. This was the name given to a crystal drinking glass, for on its preservation was supposed to hang the fate of the house and its inmates. According to the legend, it as the gift in bygone times of the Fountain Sprite who wrote on it: 'If this glass doth fall, Farewell then, O Luck of Edenhall'. In the poem, which the composer has sought to depict in music, the young lord of Edenhall is holding drunken revelry in the banqueting hall with his retainers. In a fit of recklessness, he proposes to try the truth of the Sprite's prophecy, and calls for the magic goblet.
His faithful old servant, loth to disobey, takes slowly the glass from its cloth, and in fear and trembling, brings it to his master. A mystic purple-light shines from it over all. Then says the young lord... 'Twas right a goblet the Fate should be of a joyous race like ours, so let us drink "Kling, Klang" to the Luck of Edenhall!' First it rings deep; then the roar of a torrent; then dies away in mutterings. But still unconvinced, he smashes the goblet and, even as it breaks, the foe rushes in, the place is set on fire, and the guests are overcome and slain. On the morrow the old servant, alone and unharmed, seeks the body of his master, who lies dead among the ruins, still holding in his hand the shattered remains of the fateful glass.

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.
