Learning the music has never been my favourite part of preparation - with this score however, it is pure bliss every step of the way. The fact I get to do it for my debut with the wonderful @english_symphony_orchestra and with @mkarcheryoung conducting, is just the cherry on the top. 😍🍒 Bach was my first love and true love is ever lasting. 💙💙💙 #bach #bachmagnificat #magnificat #bliss #bachisthebest #baerenreiter #englishsymphonyorchestra #operasingersofinstagram #singerlife #oratorio #grateful #hereford #shirehall

We’re pleased to have been included within a recent @Britain_Magazine round-up of things to do and see in the historic town of Dorchester… “A short distance down High West Street is an impressive Georgian building, the Shire Hall Courthouse Museum, which opened in May 2018 to great acclaim. Visitors can discover the stories of those tried in this historic courthouse (most famously the Tolpuddle Martyrs, who were sentenced here for their part in the early trade union movement in 1834), following in their footsteps from cells to dock.” #Dorchester #Dorset #ShireHall #History #LocalHistory #Museum #TolpuddleMartyrs #Law #Courthouse #DiscoverBritain

Scale. Every few years bits drop off the Lord Hill Column. It gets fenced off, various experts give their opinion and then the debate starts. The cherry picker with people in gives you some idea of the size of this historic monument.

A @shropshirecouncil traffic warden, waiting to pounce! If you’re visiting #ludlow, especially on a Tuesday when there’s no #market (and therefore it’s not so clear where you can and cannot park), be advised that the eastern end of Castle Square - nearest our shop - is strictly no parking! For some unfathomable reason the council does not put signage up to warn you of this. Can’t imagine why...💰💰💰💰. Would rather not have to make these sort of posts, but local businesses and residents are getting a little bit miffed with the folks at #shirehall #shrewsbury, and we’d like people to visit our lovely town and not go home with a parking ticket! #shoplocal #shropshirecouncil #ludlow #bridgnorth #markettown

연주마치고,

모두 일어서서 박수치고... 1부 끝나고 티타임때도 보는사람마다

마들렌한테 연주 고맙다고 인사해주고

Shirehall, The Square.

Shirehall was originally built between 1783-1785 to replace a medieval Guildhall, located on the south side of The Square.

The architect and builder, John Hiram Haycock, found that after digging through nineteen feet of what seemed like a rubbish pit, had still not reached the bedrock. The site had originally been a hole in the ground, that filled up with water in medieval times.
The pond had originally been called ‘ducking-stool marsh’, where loud women and dishonest traders were punished by means of immersion on a stool attached to a long pole.

Instead of digging deeper to solid ground, Haycock used planks of beech and short piles of oak for the foundations. The building soon subsided and cracks appeared in the walls.
By 1832, the building had become so dangerous that Thomas Telford was called in to survey it. Horrified at what he found, he recommended demolition as the only solution. The replacement building sat on a raft of concrete, estimated to be 39 feet thick.
This building was opened in 1837 and remained until it was tragically demolished in 1971.

It is now the site of where Princess House stands, housing various shops and cafés.
