I'm sure you're correct about Vic testing Pattisons' Whiskies, as soon as she was done getting high from opium tinctures and chewing gum laced with cocaine (allegedly). I have the recording of The Beauty Stone (of course).

Thanks Albion, for this, hadn't really realized what it was when you started, but now that I am "in" it is a daily must, it's surely an interesting way to look up and if lucky, meet the music of some composers new to me. Keep up the good work, you are great.

It won't surprise you to learn that I'd rather have yesterday's absinthe than any number of interpolated hymns; nor would I want a slice of that roast leg of elephant he apperars to be carving.

There were some wonderful Victorian hymns, amongst the bathos -

I'm sure there were; as an erstwhile organist in the Anglican church, I'm sure I played some (and, strictly between ourselves  Wink I do have my favourites among them). Thank you for the links; I see the pieces are quite lengthy and so I shall peruse them later.
