The Backs are famous the world over. And so too, as a consequence of a picture in the on-line version of The Times, is the Choir of St. John the Evangelist, Hills Road, Cambridge. Wow!

"When I was at Cape Town Cathedral in 1998, as a theological student, Bishop Tutu presided at Communion every Friday at 7am. I served.
