Rowland Wateridge Posted September 10, 2022 Share Posted September 10, 2022 I only saw part of yesterday’s memorial service and it would be good to have the views of other Board members. I thought the singing by the St Paul’s choir and the organ accompaniments were superlative, and congratulations to Andrew Carwood and the respective organists. Unfortunately, the BBC felt it necessary, although with some justification, to explain in detail what was happening, at times even talking over the sung parts of the service. The congregation was clearly of very mixed musical knowledge and abilities, and noticeable that a significant number did not know, or were unable to sing, the words of the National Anthem. Possibly the highlight, of what I personally experienced, was Stanford’s Nunc Dimittis in G, beautifully sung and accompanied. The service closed with GT-B’s ‘Elegy’ but, regrettably, talked-over, and even faded out by the BBC. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
