In its original form, this work was a Notturno for flute, viola, and guitar by Wenzel Matiegka, a contemporary of Schubert. In 1814, when he was seventcen, Schubert added a cello part, possibly for his father to play; in consequence, the work came to be included among his own compositions. H. R.

Robert Eddison in ' DON JUAN IN LOVE '


A comedy for radio by Samy Fayad
Translated from the Italian by Henry Reed
Production by Douglas Cleverdon
The songs set by Donald Swann
Guitar, Julian Bream
The theme of Don Juan is a perennial one, and the questing Spaniard himself has sometimes been placed with Hamlet and Faust as a major aspect of the human soul. During the present version this fact should be carefully forgotten.

Conductor, Imogen Holst
Madrigals:
Ye that do live in pleasures (John Wilbye: reputed to have been written in memory of Morley);
Hark;

Alleluia
Songs:
A painted tale;

Thyrsis and Milla;

She straight her light green silken coals;

I saw my lady weeping;

With my love my life was nestled;

Who is it that this dark night?
It was a lover and his lass (As You Like It)
Madrigals:
About the maypole new;

In dew of roses;

Ladies you see time flieth
Songs:
Mistress mine, well may you fare;

Can I forget what reason's force;

Love winged my hopes;

Come, sorrow, come;

What if my mistress now;

Absence, hear now my protestation;

Fair in a morn
Madrigals:
Phillis, I fain would die now;

Whither away so fast?;

Hard by a crystal fountain.


This is the first of three programmes to commemorate the quatercentenary of the birth of Thomas Morley—Gentleman of the ChQpel Royal, organist, madrigalist, composer of ayres and music for virginals, editor and publisher, musical theorist, and political agent.

The BBC Third Programme was a national radio service produced and broadcast by the BBC from 1946 until 1967 when it was replaced by BBC Radio 3. It first went on the air on 29 September 1946 and quickly became one of the leading cultural and intellectual forces in Britain, playing a crucial role in disseminating the arts. It was the BBC's third national radio network, the other two being the Home Service (mainly speech-based) and the Light Programme, principally devoted to light entertainment and music.
