There's nothing like singing a favourite hymn to the wrong tune to get everyone up in arms - the congregation will blame the vicar, the vicar will blame the organist, the organist will take it out, as usual, on the choir who claim they never, ever, sing any other tune. By this and other such common occurrences, a low grade war of attrition is constantly maintained in local churches everywhere. It keeps everyone on their toes. And there is no better observer of the volatile relations between the clergy, the choir and the organist than Reg Frary who has seen it all in almost seventy years' first hand experience of sitting in the choir stalls Sunday by Sunday.

Reginald Frary

Reginald Frary sang in his local church choir in Richmond for over seventy years and wrote comic stories based on his experiences for almost as long. He worked as a proof reader for a major law firm in the City of London and was at one point the City's oldest employee. He died in 2011.
