Thanks for this Holly

What a wonderful night that was - though if Neil is going to sing 'Dear Lord and Father of Mankind' we need tissues handed out with the programmes.

I think the BBC iplayer is going to be well used this afternoon in this house.

Any chance of a proper recording for 'To Our Fathers in Distress'???

Hi Greenthumb,

Glad you enjoyed the performance Smile

I don't know if there will be a proper release of 'To Our Fathers In Distress', but if I receive any news I'll let everyone know.
