Music while you work

Just been across the Piazza to meet with the organizer of the John Lewis Partnership Christmas carol service, which will be held here on 19 December. It is remarkable that the company funds a full time Music director, who runs two choirs, an orchestra, chamber group and jazz band - all drawn from members fo the company. The Cavendish Singers, who perform at the annual carol service, set an extremely high standard of music.

While there, I was taken up to the twelfth floor of John Lewis' headquarters to see a superb view of the Cathedral; indeed, the only complete view I have seen of it unobstructed by other buildings. The sight is compelling; obviously so, as an artist was set up in the office painting the scene!
