Day 66-Part II

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

Oxford, England

As we have been walking all about the city of Oxford, each day we discovered something wonderful that we would love to do. When we first arrived we saw many brochures advertising an organ concert at Merton College.  The organist is Paul Jacobs.  He is Chair of Julliard’s School of Music orgsn department. This was one event we did not want to miss!  Mary has had the privilege of hearing Mr. Jacobs in concert at SIU in Carbondale, IL. This was my first time.

The concert was glorius,  Mr. Jacobs plays the organ with great precison and depth of feeling.  He has a gift for enhancing the sound of the instrument through registration.  It was a wonderful expereince. New York  City comes to Oxford and we were here to expereince it.  What a day, what a day what a day!

I count it all joy,

Pastor Vallerie
