Dove, now I know why the bank always put Esquire after my name. David I submitted my reports with the heading "This is how we will proceed" like it or lump it being my attitude.
Over the years it was the influence of my Father, Classical, Light Opera and some Music Hall, Mother was Henry Hall and all things dance music. Learning Piano it was classical unless Dad brought home some operatic sheet music and said Half a Crown when you can play that. I found Strauss Le Harr and many other light music writings, loved them all. We had Film musicals, I still play the music and my Daughters bought me a book of modern musicals (why are they all in five flats I ask). My Daughters went through all the fads so we had to listen to the groups and yes Elvis (I hate those impersonators). The Grandchildren brought the Girl and Boy groups, three chord wonders one and all. To sum up from Chick Henderson the Hartlepool Crooner to Adele, I will listen or play as the mood takes me and quite often the Yamaha gets turned to Organ and you will hear songs of Praise, What ever we do or feel Music is a tonic in all its forms.
