I: Jerusalem

Professor Jason Whittaker 19th September 2018

[PODCAST]

William Blake – poet, painter and printmaker – has long been held as one of the greatest poets of the English language. In this series Professor Jason Whittaker examines the impact Blake’s work has had on music over the last hundred years. The series begins by looking at the music inspired by one of William Blake’s most famous works: And Did Those Feet In Ancient Times, commonly referred to as Jerusalem.

So, “Did those feet in ancient time, walk upon England’s mountains green, and was the holy lamb of God, on England’s pleasant pastures seen?” Professor Whittaker examines the text to find the answer.

William Blake: The Man & The Music is produced by Siren Radio in partnership with the Lincoln School of English & Journalism. First broadcast on 19th September 2018.
