    Goodall out of Rutter? Jolly clever writing. A good choice by Gambo, I think: a modern version which harks back (words) but is also (melodically) now.

    I’ve sung it on several occasions. You only get to hear a tiny bit of it in the theme tune but the rest is quite good. Particularly the “Yeah though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death” bit. It’s by Howard Goodall who I think also did the Blackadder theme tune.

    Luverley – but in practice, one most often comes upon the tune “Crimond” for The Lord’s My Shepherd,” no?
    Personally, I prefer “Brother James’ Air,” hower, mine is not to choose, but to provide!

    Keep up the Gambo selections Charles, he was so good!
