I have recently posted a few seasonal songs that I have tracked down from my past. We never owned this recording, Hallelujah, by Roger Whittaker but whenever I’ve heard it I have liked it. So, I did order it from iTunes this year.
Along with my mother, we once heard Roger in concert. It was his farewell tour, and he was no longer a strong singer — if he ever was — but it was still a pleasant evening. He was a good whistler: could do it both on intake and outtake, which not everybody can do.
The concert was my mother’s treat and came near the end of her days, so it’s a good memory.
