Around Winchester

Dad and I wandered around Winchester on the last full day of our trip to England.
Here are some pictures:













Winchester Cathedral

After spending a week at Chichester, around the New Year holiday, I went with the Cathedral Singers of Ontario to Winchester.
We sang at Evensong at Winchester Cathedral. 

Here are some pictures of the Cathedral: 














I also got to rehearse at the Cathedral and do the prelude before Evensong.

Here is a video of me playing Siciliano by Max Reger there:


Thank you so much to Ian Sadler, the Conductor of the Cathedral Singers of Ontario for such a wonderful opportunity!
It was amazing!
I still can't believe I sang and played the organ in England!

Around Chichester

I'm just sharing some more pictures from Chichester.
I like that it's close to London but still quiet.

This is the Town Cross, where the north, east, south and west streets meet.

Here, we are a little further from the Cross.

Christmas tree, right by Town Cross.

The Sundial

The Bell Tower






The Bishop's Palace Garden






The Roman Wall





We got a lot of gifts for people at The Sweet Jar. :-)

Pictures of Chichester Cathedral

Last week, Dad and I went to Chichester so I could sing with the Cathedral Singers of Ontario.
We spent a week at Chichester Cathedral over the New Years.




Here are some pictures that we took when we had a tour of the beautiful Cathedral:

The Sanctuary

They have 5 organs here!

The High Altar



The Shrine of St. Richard of Chichester




The South Transept

The North Transept


It meant a lot to me that I got to sing and play the organ here. My Grandma was the organist for St. Richard's of Chichester Roman Catholic Church in Kingston, Jamaica and she would have loved to visit here.
