"If you were the only girl in the world"

Mezzo-soprano Patricia Hammond bravely ends the World War I song on a note that doesn't quite work for my ears but that's the fun of being an audience for a singer who's just as happy warbling High Renaissance as Ragtime.

She is accompanied only by guitar, strummed by Matt Redman.

The setting is St Edmund's in the City, London, designed by Christopher Wren, and which has fabulous acoustics. Maybe too fabulous -- that could explain the sound of the song's final note.
