Knives check out Dudley

Thursday 27th March,
I pottered along to the St Paul's Cathedral and saw Dudley Benson.

First up we had Mr Richard Nunns. This man knew everything there is to know about New Zealand Native instruments. He gave a 20 minute lecture on all of these fascinating instruments ranging from hand crafted stone through to a flute made from bones of albatrosses 

This was a fantastic way to start off the performance which was to follow.

First the 8 part choir arrived then the string quartet. Following this the man him self Mr Dudley Benson arrived on stage. Starting off with the first track of his new album The Awakening, His angelic voice echoed through the halls of St Pauls. After several tracks he go to the single off his New album. This is a wonderful song and for anyone who has not heard it Audrey H is a masterpiece.
What sounds almost like a harpsichord brings life to the tune. The quartet follows soon after.
He continued to play all of his marvelous tracks

All in all a brilliant evening.

I will keep you posted about the lives of knives
