Poulenc: Tel Jour Telle Nuit (10)

  1. – Bonne journée
  2. Une ruine coquille vide
  3. Le front comme un drapeau perdu
  4. Je n’ai envie que de t’aimer
  5. Nous avons fait la nuit

Britten: Canticle I (11) – My Beloved is Mine





I was working in Colchester throughout September, and therefore had the privilege of visiting Copford at least three times. My little car also broke down in the car park, thus furnishing me with a glorious opportunity to explore. What a treasure! No one would surely expect this just a few minutes off the A12. Thank you, people of Copford.
