Tuesday afternoon just after 4:00 p.m. Lynne Warfel actually introduced William Walton's "Orb and Sceptre" march as having been "played at every Coronation since it was written." Since this march was written for Queen Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953, and this is the one and only coronation that has taken place in the United Kingdom since, that certainly stopped me in my tracks while putting away the clean laundry! I know Lynn is not a local staffer, but could not resist reacting to this whopper!!!!" And this is Cleve speaking: I don’t know Lynne either, but I wonder if it’s possible that she knew what she was saying, and said it tongue-in-cheek.
