John Betjeman visits Southwell Minster

This programme was broadcast in the BBC Radio series Choirs and Places where they Sing in 1967.

The first six minutes feature John Betjeman celebrating the town and its minster. This is followed by a performance by the minster choir.

I sang in the Minster Choir for that recording. I don’t think we really knew what it was for!

Is there any way of confirming that I sang one of the treble parts in the duet in the Greene anthem? As head chorister at the time I'm pretty sure KB would have asked me to sing one of the parts

I imagine your best bet is to contact the Minster authorities. The BBC may have records too. Good luck!
