: ‘ SUMMER’S LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT'

A masque for orchestra, chorus, and baritone solo by Constant Lambert
(Words by Thomas Nashe )
1 Intrata (Pastorale and Siciliana). 2 Fair Summer Droops (Madrigal con ritornelli). 3 Spring, the Sweet Spring (Coranto). 4 Trip and go, heave and ho! (Brawles). 5 Autumn (Madrigal con ritornelli). 6 Rondo burlesca (King Pest). 7 Adieu! farewell earth's bliss (Saraband)
The BBC Orchestra (Section D)
Led by Marie Wilson
The BBC Chorus (Section A)
Roy Henderson (baritone)
Conducted by the Composer
Constant Lambert's ' Summer's Last
Will and Testament' was written during the years 1932-5 and first performed at a BBC Symphony Concert in January, 1936. Although predominantly autumnal in mood, it runs through the cycle of the seasons. Lambert has called his work a ' Masque ' after the original Nashe play (1593) from which he has taken the words. Not only is the music a masterly piece of craftsmanship, but it contains some of the composer's most sensitive writing.

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.
