Ever heard EJ Moeran ? His Sinfonietta, 1st and only symphony, and Cello Concerto are worth a listen. Irish-flavoured RVW.

I'll look him out but in the meantime - RVW?


I've just finished cutting some more grass in the churchyard and about halfway through the penny dropped - Ralph Vaughan Williams. Duh! (It's the gin, you know!)

Hey - I have daughters and granddaughters who also can read about heroism! I've come to like stopping here so no sexism, please!

Anne, "mea culpa, mea maxima culpa" but in slight mitigation I did include two ladies in my R.I.P. list above. Also, by amazing coincidence, I was in my local library for few minutes today and spotted a book, whose title escapes me, but which was a history of the women who served in SOE during WWII. I had a quick skim and noticed that one of them was American. If I can track down the book I will let you know. And, of course, I don't believe for a second that you have grand daughters!
