I was wandering around your site (looking for the link to that pegasus t-shirt place that I found here before) and I read your comments about “The Vatican Rag,” etc. My father had a copy of “That Was the Year that Was,” and my siblings and I nearly wore it out playing it when we were kids. I must admit that “Vatican Rag” remains my favorite (and I shared it with the sixth- and seventh-graders whom I taught at Holy Family school), but I also fondly recall the other songs. How wonderful that I am not the only member of my generation who knows about those clever gems!
They’ve got “That Was the Year that Was” out on CD. I picked it up to share with my choral friends. But better than that, my first wife (that sounds nicer than ‘ex’, I think) found a marvelous web site where someone has made a flash animation of the elements. You can find it here.
