PJE, I feel you are missing a certain 'je ne sais quoi'.  Stedman has a
lot of history surrounding it - and this also adds to its appeal.  That
is one of the reasons we rang various 'historic' compositions this last
weekend as well as more modern ones.  At risk of sounding more stupid
than I hope I am - there is a romanticism.
