Symphony No. 3
Conducted by Howard Hanson on a gramophone record
by Pauline Gregg
As the rainbow is never on that side of the world that the Sunne is ... such an opposite and Antagonist is Mr. Lilburne to all forms and kinds of Government.
John Lilburne died on August 29, 1657. In this programme Dr. Gregg contrasts this contemporary view of his career of ' universal opposition' with his own claim that he ' scorned to sit still in a whole skin while the liberties and freedoms of England were at stake.'
