    Ahh...of the poem. I enjoyed the narrative so much I didn't do my research on the inspiration!

I read somewhere that he actually based the Opera on a poem! Which is weirdly fitting since I started writing poetry since I joined WF. To be honest I don't like Opera but I like the Sea Shanties from Grimes and I've gradually built up some knowledge of it from when Radio 3 and Classic Fm play Opera concurrently (should be a law against it). I do like Britten though, the Interlude in Ceremony of Carols sticks in the mind just now. I don't know much about him though, but much more now thanks to you. Cheers much appreciated. I suppose that car you drive must feel quite modern to you. Good innings, keep churning out the runs. All the best PG
    I learned to drive, in 1957, when I was 12, I've been doing it a long time now... That's me in my avatar, in a car I built with a friend (he did most of te real work).
