With Cheerful Voice

Hymn-choosing committee. Have I really agreed to do this every week?

There was a lot of excitement over the new hymn book, apparently. I was told at great length of all the controversy involved in its introduction. Apparently people walked out of the church and joined the Methodists. When I asked where the Methodist church is in Great Tremlett, they pointed out that it’s now “Epworth”, a private house on Chapel Street. At was at this point that the penny dropped. I realised the friction was over the first edition of Hymns Ancient and Modern, when Thomas Hardy was still a youngster.

So the hymn choice was quite wide. But my suggestion that we should look for something a bit rockier was met with a certain amount of derision.
