Very exciting - hope to be there again this year!

I take it that St Sepulchre is now 'fixed' after the organ broke down etc a few years ago...

Apparently the organ will be adequate for our needs. In any case, I would imagine that the Old Blue choir and other musicians will be providing a lot of the music.

If I start practising now!

We'll see.........

John Hopgood, Toby Kibble, Tim Benjamin, huntertitus - also forum trombonists, and there are probably more. Could be fun.

Brilliant! It looks as if there will be lots of musicians to make this work even better than last year!
Just let me know who you are and what you can do... and off we go!

Plenty of O.B. brass players will have played in the church for St. Matthew's Day services, so quite a few might welcome the chance to pay a return visit.

Just out of interest, is the 'Old Hundredth' still part of the service? The solo trumpet part used to be brown trouser time for many a trumpeter.

I think Rory was the only one I ever heard play it flawlessly.
