Lifeless Room

I am leaning into the corner of a small hall where evensong is taking place. The congregation consists of white haired women and young children. The music is substandard and slow, "Get a move on", one of the kids mutters. Two women limp out. The organist, an old man with Downs' Syndrome turns and says, "It's not working." Someone tries the keys - the organ has broken down.
