Had I Not Seen the Sun

A few weekends ago we went to Oxford to see two small exhibitions, Armenia: Masterpieces from an Enduring Culture at the Bodleian and Scenes of Last Tokyo at the Ashmolean. I was a bit indifferent to the first of these – mostly religious artifacts, though one or two interesting pieces. The second, although small, was quite fascinating. We also took in several rooms of Western art in the Ashmolean, which I don’t think I’ve been round before.

Yesterday we went to a concert, Had I Not Seen The Sun, given by The Fourth Choir at St Sepulchre-without-Newgate. Loosely themed around “winter nights and Northern lights” there were a variety of styles, ancient and modern. I particularly liked Nikolai Kedrov’s Otche Nash, though the whole concert was well sung.
