My favourite was the second boy. What an amazing voice.

Charming, reminds me of my St.Thomas ( Pendleton church ) choir days back when I was 12 in '63, 5 bob for weddings, 2/6 for funerals. Sundays gratis. Great till my voice broke at 31.

I don't think I've ever heard something like this in a Church here.
And why Joel is disliked by a person in the comments, he sounds quite nice to me?!
Pardon my ignorance of course!

I rarely look at comments on YouTube videos. A lot of them seem to be by trolls and morons. Not worth looking at.

Oops, sorry Dave Dee. I missed your post earlier. I like the idea of getting a few shillings for your ability to sing. What a shame that your voice broke - as all choir boys voices do.

Given the rate of inflation when you'd have been 31, you must having been raking in the cash.

Actually, I don't believe that your voice broke when you were that old. More likely you were singing falsetto.

Or maybe you had a different way to tackle things? (Tackle, geddit?)

Sorry Kay, nothing wrong with my tackle, the predicted text let me down again, the age should have read 13, oh yes at 14 I had moved on to my first catering contract, spud bashing in a local chippie, 15 bags a day for all I could eat and 10 bob a week , no silver spoon in my mouth at birth but totally enjoyed being a teen in the Sixties.

Methinks the gentleman doth protest too much about there being nothing wrong with his tackle. :D

Glad to hear it, Dave.
