Great Catherine and Monteverdi

This morning I had coffee with Margaret and then accompanied her into town where she was having lunch with Sally W. After a quick lunch myself I met up with B&P at the National Gallery and we went to the Hermitage exhibition.

It was wonderful to see so many unfamiliar paintings and extraordinary objets d'arts. Very well presented.

Then, after a short visit to the MPavilion (not really very inspiring) we adjourned to the Transport (Transit?) Bar at Fed Square for gins and tonics.

Then it was off to 45 Downstairs for a concert by Accademia Arcadia, John O'Donnell's group, performing Monteverdi madrigals. John's excellent introductions added to the wonderful performances and made for a very entertaining concert.

We finished the evening with lovely roast lamb cooked by B.
