BBC Radio 3

Julian Joseph talks to singer and actress Jacqui Dankworth.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b015yh01

In this interview with Julian Joseph on Jazz Line-Up, Jacqui Dankworth speaks openly and passionately about how her late father, John Dankworth, inspired her in her development as a singer. Jacqui is also an actress and has and still does appear on the large and small screen. But it's Jazz where she feels at home still performing with her mother, Cleo Laine. Jacqui made this album "It Happens Quietly" in collaboration with her father and guides us though what was a difficult process of laying vocal tracks on the already recorded rhythm tracks from her dad, especially as you can hear him counting in the band at the start of the numbers, they leave the count in on the CD for one of the tracks in his memory.

Jacqui has the best of British jazz on this album including her musical director Malcolm Edmunston, Tim Garland on reeds, Steve Brown, drums, her brother Alec on bass and Ben Davis on cello on one track.

Olympic sprinter Michael Johnson joins Kirsty Young to choose his Desert Island Discs.

Kirsty Young's castaway is the athlete Michael Johnson.

He is the only person ever to hold world records in the 200 and 400 metres at the same time and, by the time he hung up his legendary gold trainers, his haul of medals included five Olympic golds.

His upright running style earned him the nickname 'the duck'. He says: "They called me a really fast duck! I was ranked number one in the world - I'm so far ahead of the other people, why am I the one that's wrong?"

Desert Island Discs Revisited with Kirsty Young explores the choices of the author of Cover Her Face in the first of a series featuring crime writers.

P D James was born in Oxford, later moving to Ludlow on the Welsh Borders where she experienced a childhood which she says had more in common with a Victorian childhood than anything today. She was a well-behaved, quiet child who entertained herself and her siblings by telling and writing stories. Phyllis attended an old-fashioned grammar school where she enjoyed English lessons. She says "I knew I was going to write books".

Because of financial pressures at home, she had to leave school at sixteen, first following her father into the tax office, then in a theatre where she met her husband, who was training to be a doctor. World War Two intervened and, because her husband returned from work in the Medical Corps with a severe mental illness, Phyllis had to be the main breadwinner, working as principal hospital administrator at the North West Regional Hospital Board, London in charge of five psychiatric hospitals. It wasn't until she was thirty-nine years old, whilst working in the hospital, that Phyllis began her first novel, Cover Her Face. "I knew it was something I was going to do, and it was just that life was so busy I didn't get round to it". She chose the name P D James because it looked good on a book jacket, and crime genre because she didn't want to draw on autobiographical details.

The book was immediately accepted by a publisher, and in 1979 she gave up her other jobs to become a full-time writer, focusing on Detective Adam Dalgleish of Scotland Yard as her main character. P D James was awarded the OBE in 1982, she has chaired the Booker Prize panel of judges, has been on the BBC Board of Governors, was made an Associate fellow, Downing College, Cambridge in 1986 and made a Life Peer in 1992. Her books have made her a household name and she is now working on her 17th novel.

Michael Berkeley's guest is photographer, writer and broadcaster Lucinda Lambton.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b015ygrd

Michael Berkeley's guest on Private Passions this week is the photographer, writer and broadcaster on architectural subjects, Lucinda Lambton. Her enthusiasms range from the history of the lavatory to architecture for animals, vanishing Victoriana, and The Great North Road. She has researched, written presented some 55 films for the BBC and 25 for ITV, including Lucinda Lambton's A-Z of Britain, a 26-part BBC TV series, and Sublime Suburbia, a series of four films for ITV about the architectural and historic delights of London's suburbs. She gives talks throughout the British Isles and the USA, including for the National Trust, is a regular contributor to prominent newspapers and magazines, and has made several series on architecture for Radio 4.

her musical passions range from a Bach Brandenburg Concerto to Mozart's charming piano variations on the nursery rhyme 'Ah, vous dirai-je, Maman' (better known in the UK as 'Twinkle, twinkle little star'), Weber's overture to 'Oberon', Joan Sutherland singing the famous Doll's Song from Act 1 of Offenbach's opera 'The Tales of Hoffmann', Yehudi Menuhin playing the astonishingly virtuosic last movement of Paganini's Violin Concerto No.1, music by a Cajun band from Louisiana, and two more well-known pieces from America, a country that Lucinda Lambton particularly loves.

Music and readings on the life of the parish priest, with Celia Imrie and Michael Kitchen.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b015zsdq

Music, poetry and prose about the day to day life of the parish priest, with actors Celia Imrie and Michael Kitchen. Priests appear in major and minor roles in literature from Biblical times to the present day and frequently play a pivotal or catalyst part in the dramatic plot twists. Think of Mr Collins in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, or Obadiah Slope in Trollope's Barchester novels. Many priests have themselves been poets, such as R.S. Thomas and John Donne, whose work is featured along with the view points of long suffering vicars' wives, often the power behind the parish throne. Priests are often portrayed in novels and poetry as distinctive characters who are either malevolent, self absorbed, objects of desire or saintly. Rarely are they ordinary, frequently they are comical. Music surrounds the life of the church and the programme features works by Handel, J.S. Bach, William Harris, James MacMillan and Saint-Saens , and includes poetry and prose by, Charlotte Bronte, Charles Dickens, John Pritchard (Bishop of Oxford) and Thomas Hardy.

Producer Helen Garrison.

Producer's Note

For those of us whose only encounters with priests are when we attend Christenings, weddings and funerals, or “hatching, matching and despatching” ceremonies, the image created is rather sketchy. Through screen portrayals one would imagine that priests are usually either rather distant, saintly people who don’t say much unless it’s written in a prayer book, or that they are malevolent abusers of power, or incompetent, well-meaning buffoons completely out of touch with the real world. As the wife of a parish priest myself, I would say that the nearest TV has come to reality is probably a combination of “The Vicar of Dibley” and the more recent “Rev”. Dawn French showed, possibly for the first time, that a priest is human and could be vulnerable, wise, gullible and funny. In “Rev”, Tom Hollander’s put upon vicar floundering in a modern inner London parish reflected my husband’s life so accurately we wondered if the writer had been spying on us.

I have tried to reflect all the above perceptions, both stereotypical and real, in the texts and music in this programme, focussing mainly on the Anglican Church and starting at the top with the most famous musical priest of all - Zadok. Handel’s anthem was written for George II’s coronation and has been performed at every British coronation since whilst the new monarch is being anointed by the Archbishop of Canterbury, who most likely will have started his career as a curate in some obscure parish somewhere.

Crashing back down to earth, the anonymous writer of the poem read by Michael Kitchen clearly has first hand experience of parish life and neatly sums up many of the issues faced by a newly qualified curate.

The lofty “pale young curate” in Gilbert and Sullivan’s Sorcerer probably would not have bothered himself with such lowly concerns, but certainly enjoys the adoration he receives from women. As nuptials are celebrated and wedding cake is consumed during Saint-Saens’ frilly and delightful piece for piano and orchestra, the women in the congregation swoon as various preachers stand in the pulpit. Anthony Trollope’s Obadiah Slope is one of the great fictional clergy creations (famously portrayed by Alan Rickman in a TV adaption some years ago) and consciously wields his self-serving charisma over women, whilst Mark Twain’s preacher sets all hearts aflutter, as does the duplicitous “Deacon Jones”. Harvey and the Wallbangers, some might remember, had a huge cult following in the 1980s and this was one of their most popular songs, performed with the usual immaculate gloss during a live show somewhere in London.

Thomas Hardy’s narcissistic priest in his poem “In Church”, read by Celia Imrie, reveals how much of a calculated and nuanced performance preaching can be, which may not always be a bad thing if the message is to get across effectively. There is no doubt about the effectiveness of Charles Dickens’ preacher, with girls fainting as he describes the fires of hell. Nina Simone’s rendition of “Go to Hell” makes it sound almost a pleasant and jolly place to be until you listen to the words of the song.

The young Tom Sawyer thrills at the idea of a child leading a lion in the Bible text chosen by his preacher, so long as it’s a tame one, and would probably have enjoyed joining in with singing “All things bright and beautiful” on the Children’s Hour recording, though maybe not with the same cut glass accents of the hand picked little angels introduced by Uncle Mac.

The cliché of a charismatic preacher, righteous in the pulpit and tyrannical in the community, makes frequent appearances in drama and literature, but the young Jane Eyre shows some quick thinking when confronted by the threat of eternal damnation by her own domineering priest. Avoid Hell by staying well and not dying – sorted! The music here is one of my favourite films scores by the incomparable Malcolm Arnold. The 1961 film “Whistle down the Wind” tells the story of a group of children (starring a youthful Hayley Mills) who discover a fugitive in the barn and mistake him for Jesus. Arnold has a unique talent to touch hearts with his almost manipulative writing and the poignancy of the story leaves a stronger impression thanks to the music.

In any community death is never far away, but unless it affects us personally it is mostly kept hidden these days. For a parish priest it is a part of every day life and one of the most important social functions he or she will perform is not only to officiate at funerals, but to act as an unofficial bereavement counsellor to the remaining loved ones. A professional counsellor would have had years of specific training to do this, whereas a priest relies much more heavily on their natural sympathetic nature (which tends to go with the job) and years of experience. John Pritchard’s eloquently written book “The life and work of a priest” is a profound source of wisdom and experience and his description of how a priest should approach a bereaved family goes straight to the heart of what parish clergy find most challenging – the death of a child.

J.S. Bach’s music is inextricably linked with his own immovable faith and the words in his motet “O Jesu Christ, meins Lebens Licht” appeal to Christ to open wide the gates of Heaven. In my opinion, Bach’s music will always be appropriate in the most tragic of circumstances, but James MacMillan’s searing setting of similar words, dedicated to the dead of the Dunblane tragedy in 1996, also easily rises to the challenge.

Benjamin Britten’s Nicolas grows jauntily from a baby to a Bishop, returning the mood to a happier place, and here we can savour some comedy with the self important Mr Collins from Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” (enjoy the characterisation provided by Celia Imrie), along with “The Vicar of Bray” who is happy to adapt his ministry to the whims of whoever is on the throne at the time.

Much of daily clergy business is fairly mundane and Simon Nash in his crime mystery novel “Unhallowed murder” has written perhaps one of the best descriptions I have yet seen of the sheer tedium of PCC meetings. Michael Kitchen’s deadpan, sardonic interpretation will resonate with anybody who has ever attended a meeting in a cold church.

Another constant pressure for clergy is that everybody wants a piece of them, and for Sweeney Todd that is no metaphor, as he and Mrs Lovett tuck into “A Little Priest” for supper. Adey Grummet’s hilarious account of life as a vicar’s wife in “Suddenly he thinks he’s a sunbeam” reflects my own experience very accurately, with beggars ringing the doorbell every day and asking for train fares to attend funerals in Scotland (a very commonstory”, and on at least one occasion at our vicarage it was to the funeral of the same parent who had died a few months previously).

The Anglican Church will always be in crisis, whether it be with financial worries, falling congregation numbers or wrestling with controversial decisions about who should and shouldn’t be ordained. However, R.S. Thomas, who himself was an Anglican clergyman, in his poem “The Priest” comes to the conclusion that whatever people may think, the priest is still a necessary and important part of the community. He or she will always continue to pray for the souls of the parish, whether or not they venture through the church door. As William Harris’s exquisite setting of (priest) John Donne’s prayer “Bring us o Lord” fade away, and the bells ring across Ketèlbey’s sentimentalised meadow, the prayers continue to be said by priests all over the world.
