On Saturday 16th Jan, we played to a full house in Romsey Abbey, a very old, tall church in Hampshire, dating back to before William the Conquerer’s reign. The acoustics are surprisingly good! We were expecting lots of lots of echo echo all all over over the place place place, but I was amazed by the great sound we got in this wonderful old heavenly church!
Of course, apart from the bloke upstairs, most of the credit should really go to Roland Clarke for setting up and controlling the sound, which he was more than able to do by mingling with the congregation and twisting virtual knobs on his iPad.
Many thanks to Mary Dovey and all the volunteers at the abbey for organising the concert, to Rev Tim for being such a great vicar, to Liz for helping with the CDs, to David Newman and his team of cameramen for shooting a great video, and most of all, to the smiling audience for being so lovely!
