A programme re-telling some of the history of the Rock of Gibraltar since it was captured by the British in 1704 Written and produced by Francis Dillon
In 1704 the Rock of Gibraltar was captured by a mixed British force of 1,800 men under Sir George Rooke. The Spaniards made many attempts to get it back, among them the famous four years' siege, to which a part of this programme will be devoted.
In the last two hundred years
Gibraltar has always been a very pleasant station, and to many people in this country the names of Wmdmilr Hill, Signal Station, Monkey Caves, the Alameda, the Ramps, and the Calpe Hounds will bring back memories. It is hoped that some soldiers and sailors who have served on the Rock will take part in the programme as well as one or two of the 4,000 Spanish inhabitants who have recently been evacuated.

1200-1450 sung by John Morel (baritone) Mirie it is (c. 1225) ; Jesu Cristes milde moder (c. 1290); Song of Agincourt (1415) ; I have set my heart so hye (c. 1425) ; I rede thou be (c. 1425) ; Go hert, hurt with adversite (1445) ; There is no rose of such virtu (15th-century carol)
In tonight's programme John Morel is giving some interesting examples of early English songs, taken from the original existing MSS. The songs he has chosen reflect the various progressive periods in the history of English song, from its early stages when English composers broke away from the Latin vernacular and began to set English poetry expressing everyday experience. An astonishing feature of these early songs is the expressive-ness and sincerity attained by the simple means available at this experimental period.
No modern or extraneous harmonies have been added to the songs, nor has anything been taken from them-they will be sung unaltered in the contemporary English language.
