23rd May 1944: "It is a Thing Most Wonderful"

23 Tues. Mild, cloudy, less wind, rather more pleasant than of late. Gwennie and Laurie brought some meat for Dinky. This was Gwennie's first time out after her operation. She seems a little weak but is going on quite well. Shopping locally. Jean Child called in evening; gave her some packets of flower seeds for her mother. To Merton Churchyard to water Mother's grave. Alan Spooner called, demonstrated the microphone to him. He asked me to play Maunder's "It is a Thing  Most Wonderful" on the organ which I did; he seemed to enjoy it. Sowed wallflower seed.

Notethis line is a link to the traditional hymn played on the organ, with words over a video of a rural river. Music: John Henry Maunder; words William Walsham How.
