BBC Proms right now

I am seated waiting for a lunchtime Proms concert. There will choral music of Henry VIII, Fayrfax, Cornysh, Sampson, Taverner, Tallis & Ludford. The Cardinall’s Musick performs. It was a spur of the moment decision. Listen to it live on the radio! BBC3.

It is about to begin!

    Oh, lucky you, Father! Definitely a good spur-of-the-moment choice to make! Should be a real treat. If you have the spare time later (haha!), could you upload the program list?

    Oooo, I loved ‘The Proms’!

    I didn’t get to go to any of the concerts when I stayed in London, but I did see twice on BBC TV ‘The Last Night at the Proms’ from Royal Albert Hall. The ‘Prommers’ were so funny-looking, bobbing up and down at pieces like ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ and ‘Rule Britannia’!

    And me, a ‘Yank’, singing away with them!

    Ah, the Cardinal’s Musick, directed by Andrew Carwood, former music director of the Brompton Oratory, currently music director at Saint Paul’s Cathedral. A very fine musician.

    Oh I was there! The concert was splendid! Naturally I spent more time wondering about the strange Latin spellings than listening to the music!

  7. Daniel: I had to chuckle at the “Bene-DYE-see-tay”.
