SONGS BY HAMILTON HARTY

sung by Parry Jones (tenor)
A Mayo love song The sailor man Denny's daughter
At Easter
My Lagan love
The fiddler of Dooney
Of all the branches of composition, it is probably in his songs that Hamilton Harty 's gifts as a composer are outstanding. Not only is the vocal line beautiful in expression, but the accompaniments
, are always full of interest, for Harty himself was a fine pianist and accompanist. Parry Jones , who was a great friend of the composer and one of the chief sponsors of British song in general and of Harty's in particular, is singing six of the composer's songs that were dedicated to him.

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.
