Last night’s performance of The Armed Man was one of the most moving and magnificent events I have ever experienced. What a fantastic achievement for all involved!
I came home wishing that everyone in the world could see and hear that, so that there might be some chance that mankind could change their ways.
A thousand congratulations to you all.

Such a privilege to be able to sing with you as a guest and to sing again under the baton of Vetta Wise. Thanks to all who helped to put on this splendid event and who made me feel so welcome.
