HE WHO SEES THE PIPER HEARS THE TUNE


I was very fortunate to discover a host of treasures at the Dorchester Abbey this past weekend.  JOHN PIPER and THE CHURCH surveyed 70 years of his output. This show of delights was rammed into an impossibly small space in the South Transept. I would have moved some other stuff out to make more room.

A bonus was one of the Brass Bands rehearsing as part of the English Music Festival, more precisely the Jaguar Land Rover Band with Dave Lea Conducting. This was an extra treat for me, before heading home, full of Mr. Piper.
