Other remarks:

This performance by Richard Berkeley’s Nowa Orkiestra Kameralna of Thomas Tallis’ wonderful setting of John 14:15-17 has been enjoyed by many people in this YT clip. Indeed, although the Church (where Chopin’s heart lies entombed in a pillar) was full of people on the night, one hundred times as many have heard this thanks to the wonders of YT and social media.

Richard Berkeley was then and remains now one of the treasures among the non_polish community of Warsaw. He has contributed immensely to the cultural and social life of this city and of my family’s experience of it. His view that music brings people together is only part of it. His great personality also has that effect. When I look through my contacts I am sometimes amazed to see the number of people I met through Richard.

Richard, if you should chance to be reading this, thank you.
