GRAHAM PEEL is a North Countryman who seems to take special pleasure in the things of Nature. ' In Summertime on Bredon,' from the Shropshire Lad cycle of Housman, is a universal favourite.
The singer thinks how he and his love would lie on Bredon Hill of a Sunday morning listening to the church bells pealing round the shires. ' Oh, peal upon our wedding,' he said, ' and we will hear the chime.'
But his love has died and left him; she ' went to church alone.'
The bells they sound on Bredon
And still the steeples hum,
' Come all to church, good people.'
Oh, noisy bells, be dumb; I hear you, I will come.
