Friday 27 November - St. Chads

Building of the day - St. Alkmund's Close
The back bacon from Appleyards is amazing, almost a foot long and with lots of crispy rind.
There was a lunchtime concert given by the Shropshire Wind Ensemble in St. Chad's church today. 
Beethoven's Rondino in E flat minor was played by the octet of two  each oboes, clarinets, horns and bassoons.  They were joined by a contra bassoon for Krommer's Partita in F major.  The playing was good and the concert was well attended.  The contra-bassoon is a massive instrument that is not used a great deal.  It plays very low notes and was quite effective.
The contra-bassoon is centre right

From St. Chad's we had lunch at the Armoury.

Walking back it was good to see that C.R. Birch (see Wednesday) does keep regular business hours.
Friday evening is bell ringing practice at St. Mary's church.
