Spooky music


We can only speculate as to why an FBI agent was perusing a post about the admirable but neglected English composer William Wordsworth. My theory is that the spook had visited the 2016 BBC Proms website and deterred by the bland fare on offer there - six Mahler programmes plus the mandatory appearances by Dudamel, Rattle and Barenboim - was investigating On An Overgrown Path for something more nourishing.

Maybe they were after me! After all, William Wordsworth was a well-known pacifist! Best, and nice to have you back.

Sadly the days are long gone since British composers other than Elgar or Arne got performed at the BBC Proms. I think that Andrew Macgregor is the current year's holder for the number of times he can say "BBC Proms" in the space of 5 minutes. It was 4 times.
