And did those feet…

Chalk Blake Jerusalem SmWell, it’s been awhile since the last post, but with the sun out and spring in the air it’s now time to get going again. It was in the preface to his book Milton that William Blake included this short poem (1808). Overlooked until a century later when it was set to music by Sir Hubert Parry, the anthem Jerusalem has since then come to represent all that is quintessentially English (not to mention those barefoot athletes running along the beach). I am starting to work with this song as the next stage in my ‘Deep Time Chalk Futures’ project, following on from Giants of Albion, and have found a musician to collaborate with. More tomorrow…
