  • Brilliant Organ Recital by Ian Roberts today. The pipe organ sounded magnificent from ppp to fff! A veritable tour of its tonal colours. Lovely to hear works by CS Lang for first time. And enjoyed a cuppa and biscuits before and after.
  • Just finished the flowers for Easter. The cathedral looks lovely and will smell lovely when the Lillie's open. Lots of other women contributed their own style of Arrangements. Sun is shining in the stained glass windows and all is bright and spring-like.
