Same concert where this string quartet performed the music, apparently they have been playing together for over thirty years!

Lots of "Veras" in this bunch Mike.  Maybe a quite apt song for UK's post-Brexit transition.

Hugh, not sure what “lots of Vera’s” mean? 

If you are talking about the ladies of the choir, formidable. You mess with them at your peril. 😉

Mike, I was referring to Vera Lynn, whose singing performances over WWII and well into her old age featured this song (as well as many many others of the WWII era).

 

She is still alive - aged 101yo.  And probably still singing!
