All sung out today, having given Guildford Cathedral a few songs for evensong last night with my choir Surrey Voices (www.surreyvoices.com). It’s a funny place, Guildford Cathedral. Sitting on its hill with views all around, it strikes me as rather lonely, peering hopefully down at the ant-sized world going about its frantic business below and rather hoping someone will come and talk to it and not be overly put off by its gigantic size and apparent scariness. Rather like the lovely picture book MR BIG, by Ed Vere. Go and visit it if you’re passing, light a candle and say hi from me. Also read MR BIG, because that cat can play.
Is it just me, or does the Gloria bit of the Magnificat by Stanford sound like Bright Eyes?
