Greetings, my fellow port swillers!
Last evening the boys and girls down the Cathedral put on their annual Lessons and Carols Festivus and this year the thing was live streamed and YooToobed. Teh Middle Gel and her crew do their stuff starting at about 51:30. She is in the second row, third from the right. (Co-incidentally, the soloist was a classmate of teh Eldest Gel in middle school at Robbo’s parish.)
I put this up here mainly for the benefit of the Mothe, who lives too far away to see teh Gel in action in person, but I have to confess that I also am motivated by my immense pride in what she is doing. I can only ask your indulgence and hope that, at least amongst the longer-standing friends of the decanter, you understand the combination of my intense love of musick and my sincere delight in my offsprings’ achievements that compels me, and do not come away with the impression that ol’ Robbo is simply sticking on side.
(For what it’s worth, BTW, I’m told that none of the choir particularly liked the piece they sang. But that’s showbiz.)
