With all these (justified) complaints about the televised ceremony, I'm surprised that nobody mentioned the dreadful messing about with The Last Post and Evening Hymn finale. That particular musical combination has raised a lump in my throat for more years than I care to remember. The traditional musical intermingling from trumpeters and military bands is unique in its natural harmony and to clutter it up with unnecessary choral accompaniment is little short of vandalism. Presumably dreamed up by some non-military wazzock who cannot stand music without some wailing vocal input. AWFUL, truly AWFUL!!
