Leaden Echo and the Golden Echo

'This is an early film of mine - started in 1948, set aside and returned to now and again, and completed in 1955 - in which I tried matching images of my own to the poem of Gerard Manley Hopkins. When it came to editing, I read the poem, for recording first, and the pictures fitted, because I had the relevant lines in mind at the time of shooting; and I think I had to insert only one pause in the pre-recorded track.' - MT
