For he's a jolly good Kellow?
You can hear some of his Anglican chants from time to time, but I think that's about it.
But what were this guy's parent thinking exactly?
I don't know, but I'll tell you what I started thinking.
In my ongoing quest to crack the Anglican Code, I wondered if Pye wasn't just coming up with a clever take on the composer Christopher Tye.
And Kellow is so close to fellow. Perhaps he truly did want to be a fellow composer with Tye.
So in "Kellow", before K we have
F G H I J 1 2 3 4 5
five letters to get to Fellow.
After P, we have
Q R S T 1 2 3 4
four letters to get to Tye.
So we have the numbers five and four, and let's put this together with the middle name, which is John:
Now, normally I would post John 5:4 here, but go check your bible real fast because it's not there! John 5:4 does not exist!
And so, the plot thickens.
Translation tangent: If you are reading John 5:4, something about an angel in a pool, you're reading a bad translation. Or not the NRSV at any rate.
Beethoven tangent: I'm not really sure what's going on here, but Pye's name is listed a lot.
Unrelated clothing tangent: Blue dress shirts with white collars are pure evil! I just want to be crystal clear about that.
