James MacMillan - top man 2

This is becoming a habit.

Here's the letter.
I like James MacMillan PhD (Dunelm.)

I recorded The Confession of Isabel Gowdie when it was broadcast at the 1988 Proms on a C60 (remember them?) and it's in the shed along with about 100 other cassettes of recordings from R3. No iTunes in those days.

I trogged up to Westminster Cathedral on Corpus Christi 2000 to hear his Mass being sung for the first time after no doubt playing some of the gems of the vernacular sacred music repertoire in the morning for the school Mass - happy days....
