  • I’m not sure what is pedantic about this. Peter Phillips sounds and looks genuinely emotional during his introduction. The significance of the occasion is twofold. Not only was the world marking the anniversary of the Great War, but Peter was about to conduct a premiere by his long term late close friend, Sir John Tavener. However you judge his introduction, there is not a hint of pedantry.
