    But I always thought of them as attributed to John Barbirolli, not Flash Sargent: "Oh, what a lovely tune up-ooon the cellll-os". I can still hear Sir John's voice in my head.

    But then, when the second subject returns near the end on a solo clarinet, joined by its mate, the image of two seagulls soaring overhead is impossible to shake.

    Thanks for bringing back these diaries!
