An extravagant day


This evening is the final performance of our Cathedral extravaganza! I can’t think of what to say about it, as it is so amazing and wonderful - way beyond words. This is a picture of the finale (from Mendelssohn’s St. Paul) taken by my friend Maria. I am a white speck at the top of the lower left quadrant, and Rachael is a black and red speck on the altar. This will give you an idea of its compass.

Oh heck - I'll admit it - I am spamming you - NOT!
What an exciting time - were you singing? (NO, you always hang around the altar dressed in white just for kicks - sorry!) How lovely! Wish I could have seen/heard it!
Mendelssohn's birthday, like Lincoln's and Darwin's was also 200 years ago, right?
One of these years, I'm going to Seattle! somehow, someway...

Now I just know my John would have enjoyed this. He used to sing with the London Symphony or Philharmonic, can't recall which.
