A joy to perform in Nottinghamshire yesterday at Southwell Minster. The autumnal hues – the russets, reds and ambers, the pumpkins, the berries and the golden crunch of burnt and withered leaves, the clinging mists and the grandeur of the imposing Minster – it all created an inspiring backdrop for our performance.
Said by many to be one of the best kept secrets of England’s forty-two Cathedrals, the Minster is a beauty in Norman architecture. I loved looking at the wonderful ornate carvings –
a myriad of creatures, botanical miniatures, intricate foliage and goulish faces are all vividly sculpted from ancient cold stone. Each detail is so delicately and painstakingly carved. True craftsmanship indeed and such a privilege to perform in such surroundings.
