December 10, 2010



Whilst I am truly sorry you've been stranded in Paisley, it was a delight to have you with us on Sunday. Had I known your love of 'let all mortal flesh keep silence' I might have chosen it; I love it too, music, words, it all works impeccably.

Hope the thaw lets you away home. Go well, stay safe, and hopefully see you again 'ere long.


How lovely. "Let all mortal flesh" is one of my special hymns; it makes my hair stand on end every time we sing it during a Eucharist and has done since I first heard it in the months following my realisation that God was real - months when I was moving towards confirmation and a permanent place in the pisky church which until then I had only visited as a musician. The "alleluias" with which it ends come to me as a true expression of adoration - almost meeting the criteria demanded by the psalm" Make a joyful noise ...".

I shall probably have it on the brain all night now...
