Re: Lest we forget

Wish you could have played the melody fron the Branagh film behind your letter. It is a most moving Requiem.

"Do we all holy rites.
Let their be sung Non nobis and Te Deum,
The dead with charity enclosed in clay'
And then to Calais, and to England then,
Where ne'er from France arrived more happy men."
"Henry V"  William Shakespeare
The Non nobis is the Latin version of of Psalm 115 This is the English translation of verse one:
"Not to us, O Lord, not to us
but to your name be the glory,
because of your love and faithfulness."
