Here are 23 new stories, written with characteristic affection and wit, which will greatly entertain Reg's loyal and eager readers. Bellowing basses, lead singers at least a line ahead of everyone else, temperamental organists, mildewing sheet music and fusty robes - welcome to the world of the local church choir. There is no better observer of the volatile relations between the clergy, the choir, the organist and the congregation than Reg Frary who has seen it all in almost seventy years' first hand experience of sitting in the choir stalls Sunday by Sunday. This is an ideal Christmas gift for anyone who sings in an amateur choir (and the more amateur, the better).

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.
