 So seeing that some of you folks likes George Martinsgeorge-martinClassical music on Yellow Submarine , I'm guessing you gave Paul's Liverpool Oratorio a listen.

What do you think of it?

I haven't heard it yet. Thanks for the reminder. I just ordered a copy from Amazon.

I went to the premiere in London………. I'm not an, up-my-own-backside music critic so I accepted that there would be a lot of 'first hearing' going on and that I didn't have the credentials to critique on the night………. Just could say I liked it …or didn't. I did. I was in some ways staggered. All enveloping voices…..Took me back to my own limited  'roped in' 6th form choir experience………Where we found humor in turning  the famous Hallalijah chorus into 'Bollocks-to ya' without our teachers ever spotting it… Amazing what you can get away with with a look of piety...      

Paul wasn't sitting far away….This was his first really big venture into classical writing. He had help with this new setting with a new collaborator…….not sure how much. I know I felt I wanted him very much to succeed….. To show that if you can write a good melody you can pretty much dress it up anyway you want.

It went down well. Paul thanked everyone……Got his cheers and flowers and I thanked the muses we'd not had a 'Magical Mystery let-down'

I bought the CD and listened to this a lot in the car driving to london so it grew on me.

In the end the two 'songs' that stood out were…..'The World you're Coming into' and the exquisite 'violin solo'…….played so high up the fret board that only Lassie can hear it.

I think the Oratorio won lots of prizes.

Phew!! Well done Paul.

The following people thank Wigwam for this post:

Bought it on release. Liked it then, still do. Nice mix of popular and classical vocals and music.

If it works I've cut into Dame Kiri Te kanawa doing her thing on this song to a new born…………"The World You're Coming Into"... It's a couple of minutes of beauty……If you have kids, (like Paul) you'll get it.

The voice of the of the boy soprano for those last 3 notes, like a reply, makes it for me.
