4BR Sunday Quiz: The winner

You had to come up with a bit of saintly intervention to find the answer to our latest quiz.

Saint
  The answer was all about Saints

Many thanks to everyone who took the time to try and win a trio of CDs from the outstanding brass performers Anthony Galinier, Lilian Meurin and Bastien Baumet.

Question:

We asked what was the link between a British pop group named after a French football team, a famous finale to a 3rd Symphony and a television detective played by a former James Bond?

Answer

The answer was of course that they all have a connection to Saints.

The brilliant pop group named after the French football team was St Etienne, the iconic 'Organ Symphony' was written by Camille Saint-Saens, and Roger Moore first became famous playing the television detective 'The Saint' in the 1960s.

The winner

The winner was Susan White — who just happened to be on a holiday break with husband Melvin in a very nice Parisian hotel!

Susan is a highly respected professional trombonist as well as teaching lower brass at King's School Canterbury and at the Junior Guildhall. Any spare time gives her the chance to enjoy the odd brass band rehearsals and job!
