'Hymns are the poems of the people' Betjeman observes in his first of these fascinating talks on hymns and hymn-writers. Including all his favourites, from 'Jerusalem' to 'Oh Come Oh Come Emanuel', Betjeman explains when these were written, by whom and why. Originally broadcast on BBC radio in the 1970s, these discussions reveal how vital the twentieth-century's favourite poet viewed the institution of the Church to the lifeblood of the country. 326 pages.
