: A RECITAL

by Keith Falkner (baritone)
In Memoriam-Arthur Somervell
Songs from the ' Maud ' Cycle
Arthur Somervell, whose death occurred a few weeks ago at the age of seventy-four, was a pupil of Stanford at Cambridge, and later joined the teaching staff of the Royal College of Music. He was a fairly prolific composer, until he took up the teaching work that led to his appointment as Principal Inspector of Music to the Board of Education and Scottish Education Department.
His music is typically English in its economy and restraint and straightforward sincerity of feeling. It is probably by his songs that he will live, for his best qualities found their happiest expression in his settings of English poets, from Shakespeare to those of the nineteenth century. The song-cycle ' Maud ', a setting of lyrics from Tennyson's famous poem, is one of four similar cycles on English texts, the others being on Housman's ' A Shropshire Lad ', ' James Lee 's Wife ' (Browning), and ' Love in Springtime '. Of these, the ' Maud ' cycle, in the words of his biographer in ' Grove ',
' takes a place among the classics of English song for the complete unity of feeling existing between poetry and music '.

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.

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