Greetings everyone

I just wanted to put in a plug for this festival in London and invite anyone who might be in the area to attend one or all of the concerts.  I sing in Cappella Romana and am very excited about this trip.  I am the tall tenor in the center of the formation, you can't miss me, please come up and say hello.  We are being hosted by the English Chamber Choir who we are all very excited to meet.

Come and hear some wonderful Byzantine music during this season of Great Lent.

I wonder . . .

Do they have English festivals in Byzantium?

You know, with imported rain and fog, steak-and-kidney pie, and all that?

Guess I should forget the steak-and-kidney pie part, at least for awhile yet.

My mouth is watering now, though.  Tongue

No matter how far we are into the fast, nothing with the word, "kidney," in it is ever going to make my mouth water.   Cheesy

Lol!

Especially if it is followed by the word stone!

Seriously, though, steak-and-kidney pie is very tasty; at least, I think so.

What was it Voltaire said about England?

I think he said it was the only country he knew of that had 243 different religions but only one sauce.
