    What a wonderful discovery of such musicianship. This reminds me of the Compline services broadcast from the Society of the Sacred Mission, at Kelham, during the Second World Ward.

    Thank you very much for your kind words Fr. Ron.

    I’m very interested in hearing more about those earlier broadcasts. I did find this information: Wikipedia Link. This is the correct place, right?
