The rain was strong enough on Wednesday to cause water to back up in the streets of Westminster!
From the Borough Market in London, on a rainy Thursday:
I bout some Caerphilly cheese, vacuum-packed to bring home. This makes me happy.
And I spent an hour in Southwark Cathedral, just soaking up the silence.
And then I spent Maundy Thursday at St. Paul’s Cathedral, with a music list that included Duruflé, Michael Haydn, Stainer, Poulenc, and Frank Martin.
Many years ago, while I was in Muncie, I took B to Chicago to attend a performance by the Chicago Symphony of The Dream of Gerontius.
On this day, I will be in attendance at King’s College Cambridge as B sings the title role in the same oratorio.
And I shall weep tears of joy and delight, both at this most wonderful music, and at the thought of my once-student singing something to which I introduced him.
This photo was taken whilst in Chicago for that trip:
Here’s B now:
