Today I visited York Minster and attended Evensong. It was sung by Chiswick Choral Society. They sang the Magnificat and Nunc as I do with choir and one of the anthems we’ll sing in Latvia, so I found it hard not to join in!
The Minster is very lovely, it seems quite new as it’s so clean!
The organ is huge! The pipes are everywhere! Sadly I wasn’t able to play it as there is work going on at the moment and it’s covered in scaffolding, but I did get to go in the organ loft to see the console, thanks to the visiting organist Ben. He was really chatty and encouraging. I look forward to being able to play here one day, I hope!
