Magna Carta was well and truly celebrated in Greenwich last night, with a substantial and enthusiastic audience, vigorous singing and fine readings.
I don’t know whether it was a comment on the standard of stories, reading and singing but the video camera overheated last night. As a result I am gradually piecing together our records, from recovered video, audio files and other people’s video (Liam, thank you.)
So the beautifully crafted links between stories and songs aren’t quite as neat as I’d hoped. Here’s as far as I’ve got:
Jim Cogan reading his story Lag
Stuart Crossman reading Nick Rawlinson’s Into the Blue
and Owen Townend’s Stopped by a Busker
Carrie Cohen reading Sarah Evans’ Bothered
Summer All Year Long singing fit to bust, a number of songs, listed on the video apart from the title and credit ones which are The Almanack by Richard Brown, and Step by Step by the wonderful Anon. Thanks to everyone who gave up their time to read and sing it was very definitely worth it!
More tomorrow, when I’ve worked out why the sound and pictures on Liam’s video won’t sync.
