In a Monastery Garden
In a Monaster Garden is a two-minute piece created by Delia for the 1963 Charlie Drake film The Cracksman.
Delia's papers contain a carbon copy of a typewritten invoice to Associated British Picture Corporation dated 25th April 1963:
For creating two minutes of electronic sound for the 'In a Monastery Garden' sequence of 'The Cracksman', and sup- plying these sounds on ¼" tape at 15 i.p.s., 40 guineas.
with a note in her handwriting at the bottom saying:
the instrument is an Eb safe- unlocking mechanism! Hope you like it -- Delia Derbyshire
Although the 1963 Charlie Drake comedy film by ABPC contains a short sequence in which Drake and some prisoners escape briefly into the prison grounds, its music is orchestral and has nothing matching Delia's description or style.
