There are few more spectacular locations than Wells Cathedral, where I performed the Mozart Requiem this evening beneath the building’s iconic scissor arches. The event was an opportunity to catch up with an old friend from the Methodist Association of Youth Clubs Orchestra and Choir (all seems so long ago!), Matthew Owens who was conducting on this occasion. Wells always provides an opportunity too for catching up with friends Moyra and Richard Montagu at nearby Parbrook.
The weekend was a perfect blend of work and relaxation and it ended surprisingly: we came back home with a newly-acquired Andrew Garlick harpsichord in the back of the car. Just what we’d been looking for, and the deal was signed, sealed and delivered even before the instrument went up for sale!
