  1. You forgot to mention Arthur Sullivan, of Gilbert & Sullivan fame. P.G. Wodehouse would have been disappointed in the omission.

  2. Yes, I meant to do! Thanks. There’s a psalm in the ’59 (CRCNA) psalter-hymnal that uses a tune by Sullivan. Whenever we sing that tune it’s hard not to hear one of his light operas.

  3. There was a book written about C S Lewis, JFK and Aldous Huxley meeting in heaven after they died. Does anybody know what the title was or who the author was? Peter Kreeft seems to stick in my mind.
