A Song of Joys - Woodgate
(First broadcast performance)
The first of the three choral works to be heard this evening, Rootham's Brown Earth, is a setting of verses by Thomas Moult, the opening words of which are: 'Brown earth, sun-soaked. Beneath his head And over the quiet limbs Thro' time unreckoned Lay this brown earth for him.'
The second, Balfour Gardiner's News from Whydah, is a setting of John Masefield's poem, opening: 'Oh did you come by Whydah Roads, my tarry Buccaneer? And did you see the Anna Pink, and whither did she steer?'
The third, Leslie Woodgate's A Song of Joys, consists of the settings of verses by Walt Whitman and John Addington Symonds; the first: 'O to make the most jubilant song!'; the second: 'These things shall be!', which, by the way, listeners will remember was set by John Ireland for the Coronation.
