    I did very much enjoy the concert at Chelmsford Cathedral today and, as I was sitting right in front of you, my enjoyment was visual as well as aural. You appeared to delight in your music-making and you had the rare ability of being able to share that delight with your listeners.
    Thank you for a really wonderful hour!
