As some of my friends know, I have a passion for trees that resemble or pre-echo the design of Gothic vaults. This avenue I found near Wells-next-the-Sea in Norfolk, leading up to Holkham Hall.
Contrapuntal, don’t you think?

Every year since we moved into 22 Gibson Square in August 1994 we have had a photograph taken in August to mark the passing of the years. This is the latest in the series – the 16th. From left to right you see: Caroline Trevor, Edmund Phillips, Peter Phillips, Harriet Pilcher and Lucy Pilcher.
On Sunday February 8th I was able to make my debut as a bass in the choir of St Mark’s, Venice, despite the unusually high water surrounding and entering the building. I am seen here rushing to my first (and last) rehearsal. Alongside me as a fellow initiate on the bass part was Michael Emery, senior producer of the BBC Singers. In fact, because the water kept some of the regular members at home, two-thirds of this bass line was made up of Brits, who were said (by themselves) to have acquitted themselves with distinction. The Maestro di Cappella (and successor to Monteverdi), Marco Gemmani, made no comment. The music on this occasion was entirely by Monteverdi, and was sung from the left-hand of the two cori spezzati choir-lofts over the altar.
