Acoustics

Gifts do not always come in boxes with ribbons, nor do they always come when usually expected (that would be Christmas, birthday and the occasional Mother's Day).

Gifts come in the spectacular acoustics of the empty chapel in the pope's palace in Avignon and the church at the abbey at Le Thoronet and a kind guide who asks a singer if she would be willing to stand behind the pillar and sing when he gives the sign. Thank you, mon guide, thank you, Mr Yelland, thank you, William Byrd.

Non nobis, Domine, non nobis. Sed nomine tuo da gloriam.
