Music in the service of the church in the service of the world
The River Nene in the fens of eastern England is sometimes pronounced to rhyme with "Dean",
sometimes with "den".
A tweet from the Dean of Durham Cathedral, Michael Sadgove, prompted me to pen the following limerick:
A Dean who had been to the Nene
said "the scene on the Nene is serene";
but a hen from her pen
said "it's not Nene, it's Nen,
'cos the Nen's in the Fens, my old bean."
