Milton. Preface - aka: Jerusalem

In my recent post on Brahm’s quintets and William Blake’s poems I cited “Milton. Preface” in the original and in the german version translated by Wolfgang Schlüter. Naturally, this motivated me to poke my nose in samples of Hubert Parry’s anthem on youtube.

Other acts worthy of mention: a rather bombastic one (well tuned however)one from the Last Night of the PromsThe Royal WeddingThe Four Crooners.

Enjoy the show!
