I was born by an emergency c-section, apparently I didn’t make much effort to arrive! My parents had been to an event in the summer and heard violinists, Duel play. I’ve been told my Mum said she could give birth to that music and my Dad became the only man in the queue to buy a CD.
So when they were asked if they had any music to play during the operation they handed over the CD. The Consultant approved of their choice and I was born as ‘In the bleak midwinter’ played.
Today I sang the first verse solo in church and then joined by the choir before Tim sang the third verse.
It was a privilege to sing music so special to me so close to my birthday. ln the bleak midwinter
