‘You’ll doubtless recall that Luke Howard wrote some music a while back to accompany me at book signings and presentations for Life is Just… I recorded him playing the suite in St Swithun’s church, Sandy a coupla weeks ago. Here’s the Vimeo link so you can watch it:’
A new review of The Keeper of the Faith : “I have just finished ‘The Keeper of the Faith’. It is a very personal book – all about the author’s experience, knowledge, passions, imagination and ultimate goal. The Vietnam section is excellent and could have made a book on its own. The ‘Keeper of the Faith’ is the right title. We are all trying to keep the faith through the vicissitudes of life and the struggles with our individual self.”
Thanks for the update Nigel. What a wonderful thing to have a piece of music composed for one of your books!
