Thanks Pete & David for those merry notes. 

And this is perhaps what we've listened to at this list before - 
the BBC R3 - Sweeney Agonistes.  You'll find more Sweeney here 
than just the Agonistes, though. Here's the link:

If you have any problem with the link please write to me for a file 
that can be downloaded.

terrific david,

this week I heard an elderly composer say she and her daughter both used to listen to the rising scale of propellor engined airplanes as they took off - B flat was prominent. Perhaps she could have corroborated his evidence. He certainly used to jump about playing  the saxophone which was more animated than was fashionable then I recall. But the rest of this crew would be a hoot  - Williamson, Revill, Cribbins and LeMesurier all together is a contrasting company.

cheers Pete.

John Dankworth once tried to get off a speed infringement charge by claiming that he always knew when he was at the speed limit because his gearbox whined in G Flat  - ingenious, but cut no ice with the court.
