Oh, but it is...

Someone affixed this cartoon to the vestry notice-board. If only...

Presumably the 'less fattening, lower cholesterol, more tasteless' alternative ........

Or was it, nonetheless, 'Utterly Rutterly'...... ?

The Dotterel said...

Oh, I can't compete with that, Chickpea. (It's far more entertaining than the music of John Rutter!)

Kevin Musgrove said...

splendid!

Sir Monocle said...

Good show!

My choir continues this rumor that Rutter hates sopranos. I understand his wife is an alto. Any of this true?

With all this Johnny Rotten Rutter talk, I decided to pull out the fluffy favorite, "For the Beauty of the Earth". We'll sing it on Oct 26. In the bulletin will say, "In honor of Can Bass 1".

You mean "In HONOUR" Sir Monocle.

Honour has a U before the R.

If you're dyslexic, apologies. If you're American, learn.

Ha, ha, I really laughed at this! One picture, very few words: so many bloggers could learn from this. To "Rutter somebody up" could be an expression meaning trying to be nice and emoliant but only succeeding in being annoying.

Lay Clerk said...

Sir Monocle, surely he would hate Altos?

Easy does it on American spellings, there Eddie. If it wasn't for the Yanks you might be "Ehren der Deutschen".

Can Bass 1 said...

Now, steady on there you two. I, for one, am perfectly happy to accept variant spellings - after all, Shakespeare did it with his own name. Just as long as it isn't programme...

I'm really cross about that caption, because I thought of it two years ago. We were singing "Christ's Blessing" by Paul Leddington Wright for Sunday Half-hour on Radio 2. In Gb major, treacly and with the same old modulations, it was worthy of the Utter Bilgemeister himself, and I made the said comment to the producer, who laughed and said she would pass it on to Roger Royle. He didn't use it though. Scared of being sued I expect.

Ha ha - very good! Too much Rutter is definitely bad for you! Certainly furs up my arteries!

"Easy does it on American spellings, there Eddie. If it wasn't for the Yanks you might be "Ehren der Deutschen"."


How true, thank you so much. Equally, if it wasn't for the Yanks, millions of Vietnamese people might be "alive"!

Isn't war hilarious!

The only piece of Rutter that does for me is one of his rare orchetral works - Suite for Strings

My word, the man writes for other forces! Well I never...
