Chartered Accountants Installation Dinner - 12th October 2010

Our Clerk and I dined as guests of the Chartered Accountants on the occasion when they installed their new Master. It is always interesting to see how other companies do things - one of the nice ideas we picked up from them is for the Master to sign a copy of his declaration to serve the Company.

I was fortunate enough to sit next to Alderman Roger Gifford, Master of the International Bankers. Although we discussed more serious subjects, we also agreed that the City's Sung Grace (Laudi Spirituali of 1545) is set in too high a key. The third line is too high for altos and basses, so I end up singing that line at tenor pitch. Ho hum, the challenges of being a Master.
