Bayreuth - die Kirche

Our concert at the Ordenskirche Bayreuth has happened... and we are still alive!
Thrillingly lots of people turned up, some after the church service, others who had seen us last night in die a cappella Nacht - and we gave them an hour of early tunes... Bingen, Byrd, Bennet, Monteverdi, Arbeau, Arcadelt & Weelkes through Rossini, Genée & Sullivan up to Richard Rodney Bennett [no, he's not so early, but the piece we sang is a setting of 17th Century poet, Francis Quarles!]

Wonderful - even more so, having repaired to a typical upper Franconian restaurant for meat and dumplings and lovely dark beer of the region...!
The aeroport beckons...

Splendid... home for a quick day off, then the Savoy on Tuesday night... entertaining at a meeting of Urologists... hope they won't be too probing...
