‘The Lord bless you and keep you’ – by John Rutter sung by Huddersfield Parish Church Choir this morning.
I was transported to three close friends who I grew up alongside.
One – her mother died when she was only a teenager – we sang this at her mother’s funeral.
The second two got married and the same piece was sung at their wedding.
Yesterday I went to a surprise 50th for the bride.
Evocative music indeed!
