Ah ha! As usual you raise many interesting issues your Sublimeness.
Reading I.V. for the 3rd time now. I don't do faith. I like to think I do trust based on evidence, contemplation and such like but maybe I just think what I like and ignore what I don't.
I think the I.V. clears a lot of things up. The first 'Revival' wasn't a much of a revival. Collectors seemed to have taken songs prisoner, allowing some out on parole - as long as they didn't scare anyone and locked the rset up in CSH.
The real Revival was the 'second' one from the 50's bursting through the 60's and against all odds doing pretty well today.
As for J of A, if no evidence of any kind exists about him and his stick and people want to believe otherwise I guess it's none of my business but I'm not sure what I am supposed to say if it's raised in discussion.
Have a great time in Sheffield - a City close to the hearts of The EFDSS I understand
