Requiescat in Pace (again, or rather, still)

The concert went very well last night. Very well indeed. And I got the top A flat! I think. And we get to do it all again in a few hours at 6pm in Hyndland Parish Church in Glasgow. Do come along if you can.

Today though I am on a bit of a downer. I just don't feel as upbeat as I have done recently. The reason is that today is the 12th anniversary of my mum's sudden, unexpected, untimely and early death aged 56. I've blogged about it previously, so I won't dwell on it too much now. Well, I won't dwell on it here anyway, but I just can't seem to get it out of my mind today. Since last night at midnight in the taxi back home after the post concert drink in The Primary pub in Glasgow's Woodlands Rd in fact. Friends are a help though. Particularly RE. Thanks. And sorry for being somewhat distracted and grumpy looking this morning. I'll try to be better this evening.

They shall not grow old as we who are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we shall remember them. Rest eternal grant unto her O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon her.


  1. I'm sorry to read your rather sad post, but delighted to have found your blog. We lay-clerks must stick together!

  2. We must indeed stick together.

    Thanks for your kind words, and I must say I've been enjoying reading your Blog pretty much since it started. Hence the reason I've a link to it in my sidebar!

    As an aside, would I be right in saying that your not too bad cathedral sits atop a hill? A steep one at that!
