** The preface to ''Milton'' includes the short poem "And did those feet in ancient time", adapted into the hymn "Jerusalem" ([[NamesTheSame not to be confused with Blake's epic poem]] ''Jerusalem'', as seen below) by Sir Hubert Parry in 1916. This hymn is now considered one of England's greatest candidates to a national anthem, and is a staple at the Last Night of the Proms. EmersonLakeAndPalmer opens their album ''Brain Salad Surgery'' with a CoverVersion.
