211/365 Intent

"The Quire at Bristol Cathedral"

Our intent was to sing a beautiful Evensong.

The acoustics at Bristol cathedral were stunning.  Every place we sang in this building made us sound just amazing  It was truly a gift to have the opportunity to sing in such a place.  And the verger in charge of us was great!  Not only was she an American, she had lived in Texas for five years!  When she came to get us in the cloister before Evensong, she had on her vestments and a black cowboy hat.  The hat itself didn't last long, but its impression did.

Im not sure where the day went.  We had two rehearsals and sang Evendong.  I also listened to another American choir sing a noontime concert in this space.  

I have a few more pictures, but I am losing the battery on my computer, so they will have to wait for another day.  The only place in this hotel where there is free wi-fi is in the bar and there is a lack of accessible plugs.

More later . . .
