: SPORT IN THE MIDLANDS'

Fourth Round of the F.A. Cup

: ' SHAKESPEARE SONGS '

The BBC
Midland Singers
Conductor, Edgar Morgan
Only one of the songs in this evening's programme — Weelkes's ' My flocks feed not '-is by a contemporary of Shakespeare's. The rest are settings by modern composers who thus adventurously (and on the whole successfully) challenge comparison with the long line of British and foreign musicians-Purcell, Arne, Mendelssohn, and the rest-who have laid hands on Shakespeare in the past.
To attempt to match Shakespeare's word-music with music of one's own is, admittedly, no easy task. Yet these lyrics, scattered through the plays, demand to be sung, and they have called into existence a surprising number of adequate and even more than adequate settings.

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
