A blessing on the day. Dawn in the fog. The walk to work…

I am lucky in my artistic work. I collaborate with wonderful friends, players and composers, at one of the richest times in music’s history. Today (19th December 2016) was wonderful because I was able to work with Linday Merrick, Paul Pellay, Jonathan Haskell, Clifton Harrison, Neil Heyde and Mihailo Trandafilovski in the wonderful little medieval chuch of St John the Baptist, Aldbury. Music, History, Nature and Friends conspired to make it a day of wonder. Here are some of the results.
