A study of Richard Crashaw 's poetic style by T. 0. Beachcroft
The poems read by Marius Goring , Alan Wheatley Diana Maddox , Frank Duncan
Produced by Douglas Cleverdon
This programme is not intended to dramatise the life story of Richard Crashaw (c. 1612-1649), nor to show the complete range of his poetry, secular and religious. It is a presentation of a number of his poems grouped round a central idea. Its aim is to use broadcasting to bring out a special relationship between Crashaw's elaborate baroque style and sound. The title is ftaken from one of the best known of his secular poems.

William Bergsma, who was born in California in 1921, studied under Howard Hanson at the Eastman School of Alusic; in 1945 he was awarded a grant given by the National Institute of Arts and Letters for ' outstanding achievement.' Descendant of a long line of Italian musicians, Norman Dello Joio was born in 1913 in New York; he has studied with Hindemith, and, like Bergsma, has won a number of prizes. Charles Jones settled in New York in 1928 after spend- ' ing the first eighteen years of his life in Canada; among the musicians to whom he is most indebted, he says, are Aa.ron Copland and Milhaud.
