Take a Bow, Constable Alex Morgan

We are surrounded by music. We do not listen to much of the music we hear. Even when we listen attentively we can find that our attention drops or is stolen by some other entertainment. Often the sounds that we hear are offensive or seek to steal our attention from the task of shopping. The isle may be full of strange sounds but they do not always give delight and sometimes they hurt.

I remember many years ago before football matches in the early sixties; fans sang then not musically but usually with wit. At the stadium of my favourite club we had the band of the Metropolitan Police play before each match and while they played people talked chanted and sang in the pre match rituals of the day. Before the players came out to the pitch a tenor sang light opera; it was usually I remember one song which ended with the tenor holding a powerful note. Take a bow, Constable Alex Morgan.

  1. I only ever went to one main league football match in my life, at Leeds my local team, the sheer energy witnessed there was absolutely electric, Ohh for some of that kind of energy in reality, would bite for what really matters.
