Letter: Proms: choral chauvinism or jolly good fun?

Sir: With regard to the communual singing on the Last Night of the Proms, having experienced a lifetime of congregational singing, I am convinced that those who take part most vigorously do so because of the tune, not the words. Good tunes, in spite of the nonsense to which they are sometimes set, have their own value which is not to be despised.

Could someone now give us some attractive words for the superb tune of 'Land and Hope and Glory' in time for next year's final Promenade concert?

Yours faithfully,
