17th January 1944: ...he taught me to sing

17 Mon. Less cold, very dull. Ordered a sheaf of flowers for Uncle Alf's funeral at a shop in Coombe Lane. Chas came into the shop while I was there on a similar errand. Dr. Luke Wiseman died yesterday, aged 86. He did a great work for us at Cottenham Park in the early days of the new church. I admired him like few men and I shall ever remember his wonderful work as choirmaster. I gained much knowledge and improved my singing voice under his training.
