Durham Miners Gala.

Went to the Gala yesterday to publicise full reserve banking.  Brilliant brass bands there. "Gresford", the miners hymn was played a couple of times. It's beautiful. It  was composed by  Robert Saint (who was a coal miner) to commemorate a disaster at the Gresford mine in 1934. There’s a YouTube recording of it (not in very salubrious surroundings).

However, there's no substitute for being within meters of an actual live performance. In particular the lowest notes are right at the bottom of the human audible range: makes your lungs vibrate...:-)
