A Recital by Peter Howard (baritone)
My Life's Delight ) (Seven Eliza-Damask Roses bethan Lyrics) A Land of Silence ) (Songs of Coronal } Sorrow)
Weep you no more (Seven Elizabethan Lyrics)
Cherry Ripe (To Julia)
In an article in The Listener two years ago Francis Toye , writing of Roger Quilter as a song-writer, said that : ' Individual songs by Warlock are more ambitious, stronger, at their best decidedly more original, but in my view they cannot compare with Quilter's as regards charm-and charm is an especially precious quality noticeably lacking in modern English music as a whole.
' In modern English music, be it noted. English music in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries was full of it ; indeed, freshness and charm were perhaps its outstanding characteristics. That is why Quilter seems to me a more important composer than is often imagined ; almost alone he carried the genuine English tradition into our own day. I am unable to feel that anybody else has written so many songs that combine so happily a real lyrical quality with impeccable workmanship '.
Peter Howard , the soloist for this recital, was a scholar of St. John's, Cambridge. He has broadcast frequently in the last ten years, and has composed a number of song settings.

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
