A proper Cornish welcome

Had a lovely (but cold) weekend in Truro, with the Friends of Cathedral Music. The cathedral is 125 years old, so there was much celebration, including a very well-organised concert involving all four choirs – junior, youth, main and voluntary cathedral choirs; also organ recitals, meals, talks on the cathedral and its music, and tours. Truro, and its cathedral, are obviously very well cared-for: the city was so clean and tidy, so much thought had gone into the service and event preparations, and the vergers in their bow ties with cassocks looked so cute!
