It’s been a day off today and so I’ve done some National Trust property exploring in the area. I visited Petworth first which is huge! It’s known best for the art work it displays. There is a small organ there, but it’s now redundant and not playable.
Later I visited Polesden Lacey, a lovely property which I actually felt I could live in! Perhaps it was the pianos around the grounds and house, including a rather nice Steinway!
This evening I headed to the Cathedral for Evensong, sung this evening by Lichfield Choral. I missed not being involved in the service, but they sang music/settings I am familiar so I was singing along in my head even if not in the choir stalls!
It’s been a really relaxing day. Tomorrow there are two services, choir practice and I’m out for lunch with my Mum in between, along with a trip to Clandon Park and Hatchlands again.
