The missus found the above Christmas concert flyer the other day in a bunch of old papers.

It was given to me by my favourite uncle (pictured far left) when we visited the beautiful old church (not pictured) at Medemblik in 1981 a couple of weeks after the concert. He took it off the wall to give me as a souvenir of our visit there.

My mother tells me she attended the church regularly as a child.

My uncle — Johannes Joseph ‘Jan’ Stam, who conducted the two celebrated choirs that featured in this concert — died in 2000 at 81 years.
