Tales from the Stave

Wednesday 26 October 2011


A recent episode of the BBC Radio 4 show Tales from the Stave examined the manuscripts of two of former RCM Director Hubert Parry’s most famous works: I was Glad and Jerusalem.

RCM Librarian Peter Horton – a noted Parry expert – introduced listeners to the 1902 manuscript of I was Glad.  The programme also included a performance of the anthem itself, recorded in the RCM’s Durrington Room.
