The acts and scenes listed above are those of the musical work "A Time of Fire".

John Stuart Anderson's play "Tyndale"  is cast within three acts, the boundaries of which do not necessarily coincide with the movements of Dr Jackson's music. Natural subdivsions also occur during the course of the scenes here delineated,  especially at points where the spoken voice is heard solo and not underpinned by the musical score.

The text booklet with the  recording contains the stanzas sung by the choir and soloists.

The full text is to be found in the published vocal score to "A Time of Fire" (Banks Music Publications)

and the complete play "Tyndale – a comedy of sorts" is published by J Garnet Miller.
