Mike Westbrook’s settings of William Blake’s powerful poetry were originally commissioned in 1971 for the National Theatre production of Adrian Mitchell’s Tyger. The Westbrook Blake, also known as Glad Day, has been performed many times since, in London, throughout Europe, in New York and Australia he came out of the jazz ferment of the 1960s and found his way to a music in which he can employ everything he has learnt.
