The Taming of the Shrewsbury

Sunday we travelled the rails to Shrewsbury in Shropshire.  Training through the countryside I understand why the early English settlers called the land they discovered  New South Wales.  Although not in south Wales, the countryside is so similar to the mid west of New South Wales.

ImageOn arrival we taxied through the ancient buildings of Shrewsbury to the magnificent St Chads church. It is apparently one of the three circular churches in England. Very beautiful.

We sang Evensong service, then a concert.  The audience was very welcoming. First performances on a tour are always a little nerve wracking, however our audience was very enthusiastic with comments ranging from “the most exciting concert I have ever been to” to “I really quite enjoyed it”.

After a full day of rehearsing, traveling, service and concert we went out for pizza with some members of the St Chad congregation who were billeting us for the night.  For all accounts everyone thoroughly enjoyed their stay. I had a lovely evening and morning with my billets in the little village of Dorrington. Thanks to all those from St Chad’s who looked after us so well.

After a restful sleep we are off to Cardiff, Wales for a day of being a tourist.
