' Christian England '
4—' The English Bible '
By Alec MacDonald

Produced by Geoffrey Dearmer
While Michael is finding the places in the Bible for his father, the Rector, to read the Lessons at Evensong, he happens to notice the Translators' Preface to James I. And so he asks his father about the languages the Bible was originally written in, and how it came to be translated into English. When the Rector has told him the story of Wycliff's translation, they are visited by the shade of his predecessor of four centuries ago. This ghostly rector tells them he was an intimate friend of William Tyndale , who suffered martyrdom in 1537, and on whose translation the Authorised Version is based.

The original parish church of Slough was the Norman church of St. Laurence, Upton, dating from 1156, but this beautiful little shrine became so dilapidated in the course of centuries that the building of a new church was begun in 1835 (consecrated in 1837) nearer the Bath Road, where houses were springing up rapidly. This is still the parish church, although the original church, has now been restored and is in full use.
The present Bishop of Buckingham (the Right Rev. P. H. Eliot ) was Rector from 1896 to 1921. He still lives in Slough, and frequently assists at the services. The present Rector (Canon A. G. P. Baines) succeeded him in 1921.

Antonio Sacchini was born near Naples in 1734 and died in Paris in 1786. As a young man he was an accomplished singer and violinist, but early in his career he turned to composition and made a great name for himself as an operatic composer. His opera Oedipe a Colone, which is considered his masterpiece, was finished early in 1785 and was first performed at Versailles in the following year. It became a favourite in the Opera repertoire and held the stage for about fifty-seven years.
Andre Gretry , who was born at Liege in 1741 and died near Montmorency in 1813, was a composer of a number of operas that received great success during the composer's lifetime. Apart from operas, however, he composed a certain amount of instrumental music, among which is the present Flute Concerto. Flute concertos by great composers are few and far between. Mozart, who wrote two concertos for this highly poetic solo instrument, is one of the few exceptions and Gretry another.
