No question, the highlight of today was our choir’s debut at the Lincoln Cathedral. You can see the Evensong service HERE.
The choir did an outstanding job with the expert leadership of Jack Burnam and the beautiful organ accompaniment of Chris Reynolds. Even though David Kelley was not physically there, his presence was felt.
Below is a recap of our busy day here in Lincoln:
The punchy feeling of jet lag has been replaced with the excitement and anticipation of performing at the Cathedral. After breakfast, the group went on a guided tour of the Cathedral. Words and pictures do not do the Cathedral justice. We are so lucky to enjoy this majestic structure for a week.
In the afternoon, the choir had their first full dress rehearsal. It was funny to see the differences between how the women and men carried their robes to the Cathedral. The women carried their robes on hangers, where the guys had their robes in bags or rolled up. But, you could feel their excitement.
After the Evensong, folks went to local pubs to search for the perfect IPA, and have some dinner, and to share some laughs. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s Evensong, where the choir will sing David Kelley’s “Preces and Responses.”
