: LE ROMAN DE FAUVEL

c. 1310-20 by Gervais du Bus
A verse-translation or selected passagcs written and produced by TERENCE TILLER with associated music by PHILIPPE DE VITRY and others
Transcribed and arranged by MICHAEL MORROW played by members of MuslcA RESERVATA
Readers:
OLIVE GRECG , DEREK BIRCH HUGH BURDEN
ALLAN MCCLELLAND and HEC'roR Ross
To be repeated on January 15
Le Roman de Fauvel is one of the most curious and vivid poems of the early fourteenth century. Though in the tradition of the French allevorical epic. it is really R comic. though moralistic. satire: Fauvel is a horse, the component letters of whose name are the initiais of various sins and vices.
A single manuscript of the poem contains ' marginal comments 'anonymous but bitterly relevant poems (in French and Latin) usually set for two or three singers. it is not known by whom all tile music was composed; but one of the musicians was certainly Philippe de Vitry 0291-1361), the leading exponent of aTS nova -the new musical style which was developing at the time of the poem.

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.
