  1. I remember many nights when I was young, going to sleep while listening to the LP recording of Olivier’s Henry V with Sir William Walton’s score. What a wonderful memory, thank you!

    • Did you have a fancy record player which would lift the stylus arm once the end of the recording was reached or did you have an ordinary record player which went ‘lump, lump, lump’ until you did it yourself? Either way I’m glad to have reminded you of happy times.


      • *Peal of laughter!*. Both, and we children were strictly forbidden use of the fancy one. We had to undergo a fearsome rite of passage before we were allowed access :)
