  1. Beautifully played

    Just wanted to say again how much I appreciated your beautiful playing on Saturday. It was fantastic and really suited the mood. Lots of people commented to me how much they had enjoyed it. I will hear the Bach Prelude in my head for a long time to come when I think of the ceremony. Thanky ou. All the best,
