  2. 19% chance here. Though I may have overestimated the number of beards in the choir.

  4. I'd rather sing "Lord of the Dance" (11%) than "O Jesus I have promised", which at one stage we were singing several times a month. All the tunes are hard work for the organists - we had four (organists, and tunes, come to think of it) at the time, taking turns, and used to snigger sympathetically at whoever was losing the battle that week.

    1. Ah yes, the worst is that syncopated version - you know the one..."Oh Jesus I have prom'ist ba-ba-ba-boom to serve you to the end..."

  5. Hang on - mine says 10%, but I know for a fact that it is 0% in reality. This may or may not be linked to my being the organist.

  6. aaargh. Its Rogers Rant next week. (Honest) we get them off the campsite early to play for the service. LOD is the default every year along with my faith is an oaken staff

  7. Its 14% for our lot- but as Hymns Ancient and Modern doesn't have Lord of the Dance in I'm surprised!

  8. tried this out on a mate who is a church organist - in his case it was pretty accurate (37%)
