May Day in Dorchester Abbey

For the 14th year TWO A PART welcomed May with their concert in the Abbey preceded by songs from the tower, this year in fine, if windy, conditions. Their songs from the tower included the traditional rendering of: 'Now is the Month of Maying', 'Calon Lan' (in Welsh) and 'Cwm Rhonda' (in English).

A packed audience enjoyed a continental breakfast in the Abbey whilst listening to an eclectic programme of music ranging from English Madrigals to arrangements of Gilbert and Sullivan and the Beatles. Breakfasts, a cake and card stall raised nearly £700 for the Nasio Trust supporting AIDs orphans in Kenya. By the time you read this TWO A PART and the Rector will have visited Kenya to work in the Nasio Trust’s day centres and sing a service in Mumias Cathedral. The Rector will be 'logging her blog' in the next few days, so come back soon and read her perspective on their visit!

Thanks to all those who gave of their time, talents and money and to Dorchester Post Office for once again looking after ticket sales.
