Review:
More grossly exaggerated and distorted choir stories that have just sufficient truth as their basis that you can almost believe them to be true. Reg Frary has entertained us with his stories year after year, but sadly this is the last of them, as he died in 2011 at the age of ninety-one. Ideal as Ďstocking fillersí these books have been published before Christmas year after year and have raised many a wry smile, You Canít Keep a Good Tune Down follows the usual pattern of stories about the different choirs he encountered as he travelled among his friends and sang with them in their various churches.
