Don’t blame musicians
JOHN Ridgeway-Wood certainly deserves an apology for the live music from Duncombe Place which drowned out his bell-ringing on New Year’s Eve (The Press, January 3), but Sally Burns ought to have made it clear that the blame for this “clanger” lies with the organisers, not with The Pauper Kings.
This popular and dynamic group performed before an enthusiastic and joyful audience; but carefully respected tradition by concluding in good time. Even the rapturous applause had died away before the countdown began. Be fair. Do not The Pauper Kings deserve an apology too?
