Sunday off

Molly's casual greeting before I go to church
A morning in the congregation at St Cuthbert's Corsenside was very restful for me.  I particularly enjoy singing hymns accompanied by parishioners on fiddles.  At the end of the service they played a Northumbrian piece called "Wallington Hall".  There's a sense that this music belongs to a tradition which would have been part of Cuthbert's culture and which contributes to the feeling of continuity and timelessness in this ancient church.
