CANON PETER DUPLOCK he retained daily Bible study and structured prayer as the heartbeat of his long working days. A new, mainly American, congregation was established in Waterloo at the end of 1978, and Peter was made the first Archdeacon of what became North West Europe the following year. When Holy Trinity became a Pro-Cathedral for the northern part of the diocese in Europe in 1981, Peter became its first Chancellor. By now, he was a senior figure in the diocese: he blinked with embarrassment and pride when publicly vested with a purple cincture by the bishop, but he never wore it subsequently. Unsurprisingly, he was honoured with an OBE for services to European English-speaking communities in 1976, an honour that, he modestly said, he had no idea what he had done to deserve. At the age of 65, in 1981, Peter and Margaret wisely felt that it was time to change gear. Peter became Rector of the small village of Breamore in Hampshire, and happily retired nearby five years later. Growing frailer, they both moved to Capel Court in Cheltenham in 1998, where Margaret died in 2000. There, Peter sustained a rooted and questioning faith, and, assailed by deafness, developed an interest in the arts. He turned to writing poetry, and became skilful at it. Throughout these latter years, his two daughters, a son-in-law, and grandchildren were both a support and delight to him. He leaves a good number of friends, who remember a rich and varied ministry, offered by a self-effacing and warm-hearted priest. There will be a service of thanksgiving for Peter Duplock's life and ministry tomorrow at 1.30 p.m. in Breamore Parish Church. May this good and faithful servant rest in peace and rise to glory and joy.

The Bishop of Colchester writes: CANON Peter Montgomery Duplock died peacefully, at the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford, on 16 September. Peter devoted his entire life to the service of the Church, and a very wide variety of people. He later recalled regular inspections of the team of curates by their Rector, to ensure that shoes were clean, pencils sharp, and notebooks at the ready for appropriate note-making during days of pastoral visiting in that large parish. He later recounted inviting fellow servicemen to celebrate holy communion on board the ship bound for Normandy.

The alto line in cathedral choirs

The Viennese Boys' Choir uses boys with broken or breaking voices quite satisfactorily; I have a recording from the 1950s of a boy mezzosoprano singing solo.

Bell Sir, - Perhaps it is aiming wide of the mark to comment on your advertisements, but the "NatSol" toilets ad (4 November, page 37) is not bog standard.
