One of the projects of The Blake Society is to offer sound recordings of all of William Blake’s texts. We hope you will enjoy these readings, some of which, are accompanied by Blake’s images. Please revisit this page regularly to see the latest readings as they are added to the project, or subscribe to our YouTube channel to be notified of the latest additions.
In the coming days the pages below will begin to be populated so please keep looking if you are waiting for a particular recording.
Also – we actively encourage new recordings – just as Beethoven would be diminished by a single recording of any of his works – so too Blake – we look forward to you weaving your voice with that of Blake!
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We have been hugely fortunate to have been given access to the historic recordings made by the Sydney Group in, I think, the 1960’s, thanks to the heroic rescue efforts of Alan Pert. There are some signs of their transition from old tape, but they are great dramatic readings. We hope you enjoy them.
Finally many many thanks to all the readers who have given us these wonderful gifts.
