Another day, another train and another concert.
Today we sang a concert at St John’s Cambridge. It is an absolutely stunning church, and a thrill to sing in.
Cambridge itself was even more ancient and glorious and glorious than Oxford. We met some people from Australia at the concert.
Afterwards, we ate lunch at another fabulous pub, then walked around the shops and markets until evensong at King’s College Chapel. “Magnificent”, “Ethereal” and “Angelic” are just some words our choristers used to describe the service. The singing and surrounds were all outstandingly beautiful. A few stayed for another evensong at St John’s College to hear Bach and some more “pure, powerful and poetic singing”.
After three days straight of concerts, and two more to go we are all getting very weary, but getting settled in our singing.
NB. I am sleeping in the lounge/dining room and knowing that I was very tired everyone came in and ate breakfast VERY quietly so I could have a sleep in. Aren’t they lovely!
