About this blog

This is a window into the weird world of Anglicanism, as experienced on a Cathedral Close. Has anything much happened since Trollope's Barchester Chronicles? You will still see the 'canon in residence' hurrying across to choral Evensong, robes flapping, as the late bell chimes. But look carefully and you will notice he is checking the football score on his iPhone as he runs. This is also a writer's blog. It charts the agony and ecstasy of the novelist's life. And it's a fighter's blog. It charts the agony and ecstasy of the judo mat. Well, the agony, anyway.

Freddie's Back...

 I don't tell you what he decides to sign as his audition piece, but I reckon it was this, from Il Trovatore,  sung here by the divine Jonas Kaufmann: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBd87H8TGTk
