Thanks, so obvious!
I must be incredibly slow on this one but why With One Voice? I get collectively as the definition but how does it parse?
The WI have the hymn Jerusalem as their song and presumably sing it with one voice?
Well unless you are a member of the WI I guess that one is totally lost on most folk. Shockingly poor clue even by David McLean's abysmally low standards.
There may be a good parse, sorry.
No I'm sure your are absolutely correct and I thank you for putting me out of my misery - Google confirms the association. I even chose it as a hymn for my wedding many decades ago but hadn't a clue of the WI link!
P.S. It was a close run thing between Jerusalem and Fight the Good Fight when I had to come up with my chosen hymns. With hindsight the latter choice might have been more fitting .. ;¬)
