Customer Review

on 1 July 2010
This book is a compliation of John Betjeman's 'swan song' radio talk series.Concentrating upon a single topic,the hymn, he produces a 'sweet sound' in the reader's ear with his wide ranging review ,and adds another arrow to his multi-talented quiver.It aptly demonstrates why Betjeman thought the hymn was 'the nearest thing to English folk music ' and ably supports his theory that 'hymns are the poetry of the people'.Complete with an interesting introduction from the editor Stephen Games, which sets the context for the talks.
