The Greatest Englishman

on BBC Radio 4 FM

by PAUL HYLAND
A portrait of St Boniface of Crediton, Apostle to Germany (680-754)
'A man of piety and energy about whom a surprising amount is known, mostly because as a missionary administrator, he wrote many letters and many of these letters have survived. The portrait was illumined, as in a medieval manuscript, by a melodious production and by the comment of Dame Felicitas Corrigan. Appropriate that St Boniface, who in his lifetime was venerated by many nuns, should be appraised by this wise and beautifully spoken religious.' (THE GUARDIAN) with contributions by Professor E. W. F. Tomlin, CBE, and Peter Cousins Narrator NEIL STACY Musical research and direction by CHRISTOPHER WALKER with members of SS Peter and Paul Cath edral Choir, Clifton
Directed by SHAUN MACLOUGHLIN . BBC Bristol
