3-The Tower of London and The Royal Fusiliers
In this talk Jocelyn Bradford tells you of the age-old association that London's only regular regiment has with William the Conqueror's world-renowned Norman fortress.
The Seventh Royal Fusiliers (The
City of London Regiment) were raised there by King James II in 1685 as ' His Royal Regiment of Fuziliers '; and they have maintained their traditional link with the city ever since. They are the only regiment of the Regular Army ever to have been adopted by a City Company.

Part 2: tomorrow at 10.30
The original manuscript of the music for this play is in the British Museum and was transcribed for this performance by Fr. Rembert Weakland , O.S.B., and scored for voices and instruments by Noah Greenberg. The music has a pulse, a rhythmic vitality that lends to basically straightforward tunes an air of freshness and fascination; it shows us that the Middle Ages, far from being dark, were light enough to create what is virtually light music, even though its subject is the story of Daniel in the Lion's Den and the final judgment on his persecutors.
