Adventuring on the island

That's the island, btw.

Having been a little cold and wet over the last few weeks, it just so happened that the last four days of great weather coincided with a chantfest, preceded by Leutgeb's coast to coat drive in a day from Ryde to The Needles and back in time for tea and collecting Clare from the Pierhead. And for those of you who think the IOW a tad tame, it's quite fun especially in a car with a one litre engine. Some groovy gradients, one bit where half the road was closed due to erosion and lunch in a NT Garden. Having set you pulse racing, some photos.

National Trustyness, still holding out, still not a member.

The Needles, also NT.

The choir director at work

Here she is, typing out the propers for St Mary Mag's Feast Day tomorrow.
JSB himself ruled out his m/s paper every Monday morning, now of course the music director in the modern Catholic parish types out the music on a computer. This has to be done when there are gaps in what is available, for free, mostly, it has to be said, thanks to the CMAA and such like folk in America.

Eagle eyes chantman whoever he is and wherever he is,

oh there, with his AK47 ready to slay anyone lingering on a vertical episema on the second note of a salicus, will spot that the last two notes of lines 2 and 4 should be F# E - Tone VII innit?- and they are now; the post it note got in the way.
Have you any idea how early choir directors get up to do all this stuff? Think on people.
Happy Feast Day to Brighton.
