Concert Hall, Broadcasting House
THELMA REISS (violoncello)
JOHN IRELAND (pianoforte)
I. Como ]a rosa en la giierta (Like the rosebud in the garden): As a rosebud in a closed garden, that has not the strength to bloom, so is a girl at the approach of death. Sadly the hour passes on that day until, like a queen she lay in majesty and grace upon her deathbed.
2. Tres hijas tiene el buen rey (The good King has three daughters) : This is a strange legend of a good King with three daughters, one of whom narrowly escapes the fate of Beatrice Cenci , but without meeting with as much sympathy as Shelley's heroine.
3. Ah el novio no quere dinero (Ah, my sweetheart seeks not money) : The bridegroom does not seek money. It is the lovely daughter he desires. He does not seek gold or jewels.
4. Yo tomi una muchacha (He took a sweetheart): I chose a girl, a charming girl the daughter of a great lord. I thought that with her the world was mine. But we have spent all that her father gave her, and now for my sins I thread beads. My wife threads them one by one, I two by two. In the centre of the necklace I have put the anguish of my heart and I will send it to her father so that he may take pity on us.
5. Dicho me avian dicho (They have told me): They have told me that my love is in Venice, very prosperous, seated in state upon a golden chair. Mother, let me go to him. I want to marry my love. I want to be a married woman. God keep him alive, and do not let me die !
6. Ansi dize la nuestra novia (My beloved said so) : Thus says our bride : ' Is this called a head ? No, that is not a head. It is an orange from our orchards. Ah! our fields and our orange trees ! Long live the bride and bridegroom '. Thus says our bride : 'Is this called hair?' 'No, that is silken thread for embroidery. Ah! Silks for embroidery '.
7. Estavase la mora en su bel estar
(There was the Moorish girl in all her beauty) : This is a song of the familiar ' House that Jack built' type commencing with a Moorish woman whose rest was disturbed by a fly. ' Poor Woman I' The fly was tormented by a wasp, the wasp by a spider, the spider by a rat, the rat by a cat, and the cat by a dog. (These notes are by Edwin Evans )
(The part of the concert not to be broadcast consists of a group of Italian songs and Violoncello Sonata in A, by Weber, arr. Piatigorsky) Tickets may be obtained from [address removed] Telephone : Welbeck [number removed], and the usual agents. Prices 2S. to 10s. (including Entertainment Tax)

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
