Topics I've Started

the other day ....

16 August 2016 - 04:02 PM

Just thought I would share this bit of useless information.  Was up in Durham seeing my father (15th aug), and whilst been giving a tour of the cathedral (not for the first time, he was a guide  there), we had the pleasure to hear a visiting choir, from Wantage. They were quite a large choir, and filled the stalls, they sang a Byrds mass for five voices  at a special sung Eucharist to the Virgin Mary, as well as 3 hymns. The chap playing the H  & H organ, seemed quite deft and comfortable. Nice quiet voluntary before,  had not heard it before, and same with the concluding one, plus the  double ophicleide  and bombard Tubas  :D
