My friends and former colleagues of the Cambrian Philarmonic Orchestra seem dwarfed by the space of the Parish Church of St.Giles, described in mediaeval times as one of the 'Wonders of Wales' on account of its huge tower.

Many conductors like the 1st & 2nd violins facing each other, so I've often sat in the remote, often cold & ill-litspot on the right where you see the double basses, or safely hidden from the audience behind the pillar.

This is a performer's eye view as they rehearsed for a concert last month. My son is in the green T-shirt on the right. As you can see from the escaped bundle of straw, Harvest Festival was in progress.

Very nice, Alan. I would love to see that old church. I bet it has a great sounding organ.

Yes, that's what accompanied my Sue in the 'Creation' for which she was rehearsing in the earlier 'green dress' shot (with added necklace), with me in the choir.

The building is nothing less than stunning. I would suspect its accoustics are amazing.

Yes, orchestras sound very good, and my Sue's high soprano notes seem to make thegreat space ring, as I've heard inone or two of the great cathedrals as well.Jacqui the horn player is also Director of Music there and runs the church choir.

Alan can you get in the church after they are finished rehearsing and do an HDR photo? That would be incredible.
