This forum is not and almost certainly never was brought into being with
religion in mind - but
perhaps, under the circumstances, we may err slightly towards the issue of
Sacred Music with Jack
Drews in mind?
I had no idea that Jack was also a Choral Director and this is another reason
for wishing I had
known him because we could have shared a lot outside the arena of Triumphs and
It must surely be a coincidence that on 21st August, another funeral will be
taking place in England
at which I will be present as a member of the choir.
All Saints Church in Evesham, England sits on the site of Evesham Abbey - once
the third largest
Abbey in England until its destruction in 1540, so the land on which the church
stands has had a
strong Christian tradition for more than 1000 years.
Last night, we were practising two anthems for our funeral service and you can
hear them both on
YouTube. They are well-known, simple, lilting melodies and harmonies and the
versions we'll be
singing were arranged by one John Rutter
The first is called "A Gaelic Blessing"
The second is "The Lord Bless You and Keep You"
Jack will be very much in the forefront of my mind on the 21st as All Saints
choir performs these
