: A LIEDER RECITAL

by John Morel (baritone)
John Morel
John Morel was born in London and began his singing career as a choir-boy. At the age of ten his beautiful soprano voice was in great demand both at important church functions and at festivals. When his voice broke he took up the study of the piano, but later began seriously to study singing, first in London, then in Rome and Milan, and for a short period in Paris. His range of musical sympathies is very wide, for he sings perfectly in five different languages.
Robert Franz
This composer was born at Halle, within a week or two of the Battle of Waterloo, and died in 1892. He is considered one of the most important composers of German lieder ; at his best sometimes ranking with Schumann and Brahms. Although Franz wrote over 250 songs, his name is comparatively unknown in England. Mendelssohn, as did Schumann, praised his early songs very warmly, but was not so appreciative of the later ones, which he complained lacked melody-a more or less meaningless criticism, as history has shown so many times.

Louis Levy is well known to radio listeners through his successful Music from the Movies' broadcasts, and to filmgoers because he has been responsible for all the music for Gaumont-Bntish and Gainsborough pictures since 1928, when he recorded the music for Gaumont's first talkie, High Treason. He has just signed a contract to record the special music by Honegger, the famous Swiss composer, for the film Pygmalion, and also a contract to record the music for The Citadel. And he will be recording the music for both the' new

Listeners will welcome today's guest artist, Tod Duncan , who played the lead in the recent Drury Lane production, The Sun Never Sets.

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.

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.
