n=1 at least from the Saturday Walkers with weather w=irrelevant.

A fine performance of Holt's I Vow to Thee My Country, which you generally hear sung as a hymn, or with an orchestra as part of The Planets, but not usually both and was therefore a considerable thrill.

Also Faure's Requiem, and Faure's Cantique de Jean Racine, which he wrote at 19 while still at music college, but which is still very much performed. And a short piece of Elgar that I did not know.

Thank you to David Hoyland for an afternoon of the strongest commitment and engagement from everyone involved.
