‘ Cyprus ’
J. R. Hilton
*
Cyprus, where you can get excellent wine for twopence a bottle, where--it is ' scarcely possible to dig your back garden without turning up the fragments from five or six thousand years "f successively breaking pots ', where the camels smoke cigarettes, and the principal river flows for only three days in the year-that is the particular corner of the earth listeners are to hear about this morning.
It has a marvellous story, too, which the stone-age men, the bronze-age men, the Assyrians, Egyptians, 1'ersians'and Phoenicians, the Greeks and Romans, the Arabs, the English (in Coeur-de-Lion's time), the Genoese, the Venetians, the Turks, and now the English again (thanks to Disraeli) have all played picturesque parts.

: PART SONGS BY J. L. HATTON (1809-1886)

The BBC Singers (B):
Sybilla Marshall Bettine Young Anne Wood Winifred Downer Rene Soames Emlyn Bebb Victor Utting Victor Harding
Conductor, Leslie Woodgate
He that hath a pleasant face The hunt'is up
The Reproach
Over Hill over
Dale Softly fall the shades of evening Spring, the sweet spring
The summer gale, that gently blows The Urchins' Dance
The Village Blacksmith What is got by sighing?
See the rooks are homeward flying Song to Pan
Around the Maypole tripping
In the minds of most listeners, even of most older listeners, the name of John Liptrott Hatton (1809-1886) is probably connected with nothing but his famous setting of Herrick's ' To Anthea '. Yet Hatton, an almost entirely self-taught musician, was no mean composer-and a good" enough singer to appear in Dublin with Clara Novello , Sims Reeves , and other first-rate artists in a selection from Don Giovanni.
He -went to Vienna in 1844 to produce his first full-scale opera Pascal Bruno. As musical director of the Princess's Theatre, London, he wrote incidental music to a number of Shakespearean and other plays. His other compositions include operas, anthems, part songs, and numerous solo songs.

: A LIEDER RECITAL

George Parker (baritone)
Gedenke doch mein Geist zuriick
(Remember, 0 my soul) Bach
Four Serious Songs, Op. 121 Brahms
1 One thing befalleth the beasts and the sons of men (Denn es gehet dem Menschen wie dem Vieh) (Ecclesiastes, 3). 2 So I returned and did consider (Ich wandte mich und sahe an) (Ecclesiastes, 4). 3 0 Death, how bitter art thou (0 Tod, wie bitter bist du) (Ecclesiasticus, 41). 4 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of the angels (Wenn ich mit Menschen und mit Engelszungen redete) (I Corinthians, 13)
Brahms's ' Four Serious Songs , Op. 121, was his last published work. Written in 1896, it is supposed to have been inspired by the foreboding of Clara Schumann s approaching death. These four songs are full of a deep emotional feeling, so much so that Brahms himself refused to hear them performed at a public concert, as he knew the music would move him too deeply.

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.
