Hymn and Cocktail Sticks: Sunday Double Bill

Hymn is a memoir of music in childhood, with words by Alan Bennett and music by George Fenton.

First performed at the Harrogate Festival in August 2001, it’s a series of memoirs with music. Besides purely instrumental passages for the quartet, many of the speeches are under-scored, incorporating some of the hymns and music Bennet remembers from his childhood and youth.’

"It’s a dwindling band; old-fashioned and of a certain age, you can pick us out at funerals and memorial services because we can sing the hymns without the book."

Hymn is coupled with Cocktail Sticks, an oratorio without music that revisits some of the themes and conversations of Alan Bennett’s memoir A Life Like Other People’s.

A son talks to his dead father as his mother yearns for a different life. It’s funny, tender and sad.

"The pinnacle of my social life is a scrutty bit of lettuce and tomato and some tinned salmon. Mind you, I read in Ideal Home that if you mix tinned salmon with this soft cheese you can make it into one of those moussy things. Shove a bit of lemon on it and it looks really classy."
