Off to Lincoln

Two years have flown by since Christ Church's residency in Durham and now we're off to Lincoln.

We have a weekend near Cambridge Aug. 3-5 where I'll be doing the rounds of houses: Burghley, Anglesey Abbey, Wimpole Hall, Boughton, Knebworth, Holkham, Sandringham, Blicking, and perhaps (if there's time) Stowe. On Monday, the 6th, we begin our week at the Cathedral - a beautiful and large edifice on top of a v. steep hill - it can be seen for miles!

Randy Manges and I get to play the fantastic and historic Henry Willis organ. A lovely connection to this organ is that Daniel Roth played the re-opening concert following its renovation exactly 100 years after the first hearing of the organ.

There will be lots to tell - and lots of pictures!
