: A RECITAL

by Flora Collins (soprano)
By Wagner :
Der Engel (The Angel) Traume (Dreams)
Bv Mahler :
Fruhlingsmorgen (Spring Morning) Erinnerung (Remembrance)
Ich atmet' einen Lindenduft (I breathed the scent of the Linden-trees)
Selbtsgefiihl (Self-reliance)
Wer hat dies Liedleinerdacht ?
(Who made up this little song ?)
Wagner's love for Mathilde Weseri donck, the direct inspiration of Tristan and Isolde, also found expression in five songs, settings of poems by Mathilde, composed during the period November 1857-May 1858. When these were published in 1862, Wagner described two of them, ' Traume ' and ' Im Treibhaus ', as ' Studies for Tristan and Isolde' ; 'Stehe still ' is also melodically related to the opera.
' Der Engel ' was Wagner's favourite term of endearment for Mathilde. A German critic has discovered in this song musical references to Loge's song in praise of women in Das Rheingold and to 0 Star of Eve '.
A short article on Mahler and his sones will be found on page 13.

A programme specially devised for Holy Week by R. Ellis Roberts , and produced by Robin Whitworth with William Devlin

The Singers
Rene Soames
Emlyn Bebb
Victor Utting
The BBC Chorus
(Section B) and The BBC Orchestra
(Section E)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Trevor Harvey
This will be the third time this programme has been broadcast. It was first heard during Holy Week, 1936, and again a year later. Both its author and its producer have had considerable experience of putting together this type of radio presentation, and many listeners will remember their delightful Christmas programme ' Unto Us '.
The aim of ' The Passion of Jesus Christ ' is to evoke a mood, which it will do, not by dramatic methods, but rather by a 'mosaic' of verse, readings, music, and narration. Much of the music has been arranged by Trevor Harvey , of the BBC Music Department.

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.
