' The Cuckoo'
Is the rhyme right? Does the cuckoo ever arrive here before April? Then the cuckoo's call ; does he really ' change his tune in June '? Where do cuckoos lay their 'eggs ? Do they carry their eggs in their mouths ? At what time of the year do cuckoos leave this country ? These are some of the questions that Eric Parker is to answer this evening.

Land and People
S. K. Ratcliffe
The idea behind this new series of twelveweekly talks, some to be given from England and some from America, is to interpret the modern America to the British listener, largely in terms of its recent history. Why are the countries so different ? In today's introductory talk an attempt will be made to give listeners a general background against which all American problems must be studied, and to say something about the attempts of the American people to meet the challenge of their own land.
S. K. Ratcliffe , who has made regular visits to the United States for twenty-five years, is happily chosen to interpret the broad American scene to our own ' daily island life', to quote an American writer.
The Eighth Beatitude
' Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven' by César Franck (mezzo-soprano) (baritone) (bass)
The BBC Chorus (Section B)
Chorus Master, Leslie Woodgate
The BBC Orchestra (Section E)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Bass solo, Not yet defeated, still my godlike power survives!
Chorus of the Just, Hear us, Justice eternal!
Bass solo, Insensates! this wild delusion provokes my scorn!
Mezzo-soprano solo, Stricken with sorrow, sad watch I'm keeping
Bass solo, Fatal doom she hath spoken!
Baritone solo, 0! ye righteous whom my Father sent
Celestial Chorus, Hosanna! Peace from God the Father
The idea of a musical setting of the Beatitudes, or even of the whole Sermon on the Mount, attracted Franck from the days of his early youth, but many years passed before he was able to find a suitable versified form of the text. At last a Mme Colomb , wife of a professor at the Versailles Lycee, provided him with a libretto, and he sketched out the music of the first two Beatitudes in the autumn of 1870. But the work was not finished till 1879 and it had to wait even longer before the first performance, which was given in 1891, a year after the composer's death.
