RIP Sir Howard

A great totara of the forest has fallen.

Sir Howard Morrison is one of those names, one of those faces and indeed, one of those instantly-recognisable voices that has just always been there.

No-one does How Great Thou Art like Sir Howard and I love the funny quartets he did that have been dotted throughout TVNZ’s Breakfast show this morning (with Billy T James and two others).

He was the opening act for one of the Mission Concerts a few years ago, Dionne Warwick I think, and he was by far the most impressive act of the night! I had never seen him perform live before and he was awesome, absolutely awesome.
