CHAPTER XVI

" Hymn 228. 'Jerusalem the Golden.' "
" Good," said Denis. "Joan, listen to us. Here goes." In the best college chapel tradition Denis and Peter let fly at the necks in front of them.

Jerusalem the Golden,
With milk and honey blest.

Denis's voice was inspired. It swooped and soared far above its normal pitch and wandered briefly among the tenors before rejoining Peter in a harsh and toneless roar, At the first blast the tripper family faltered and stopped singing. Not to be outdone, bull neck embarked on a pompous bass of his own. But a more than usually cracked note from Denis, which finished away up among the altos, threw him out of stride. He turned a furious face at Mr. Bailey, who chanted his own tune in his own time and cared little for what progress the rest of the congregation were making. Joan warbled softly. Mrs. Bailey repeated the words of the hymn without singing. Before the last verse, bull neck closed his hymn-book with a snap and laid it on the shelf. "And Spirit ever blest. Aaaa ... men," sang the Speenmouth choir.

Land of -rest,
Who art with God the Father
And Spirit erer blest. Amen,

sang Mr. Bailey. He folded his hands behind him and gazed round the church with mild interest. He never used a hymnbook, as he knew all the vicar's hymns by heart.
The congregation were in no hurry to disperse, when the service was over. Those, who did not belong to the Speenmouth Gentlemen's Club, used the churchyard as a useful spot to make mutual arrangements for the week.
" Good morning, Mrs. Bailey," said Maureen. " Hullo, Denis and Peter. I heard you two singing a dozen pews away. I wonder you weren't turned out."
