Joan Sutherland was never on my musical radar so there's no point in me doing one of my usual obits. But Doug has posted something tasteful and appropriate over at COUNTERLIGHT'S PECULIARS.
If I said THIS I would be in an awful lot of trouble with the usual patriots. But Sherry at A FEATHER ADRIFT can say it, and get away with it, as she is a self-confessed part of the problem.
That young whippersnapper, Lesley Fellows is being all clever again over at LESLEY'S BLOG. Those of you into churchy stuff will probably like her post a lot, and, although I don't like to encourage her in case it puffs her up, I have to admit that it is quite good.
