South to London, leading global city, founded by the Romans, two millennia ago.
I love London because it's full of people walking about and I did a lot of that the day before our singing date. I hopped off the number 59 bus at Waterloo Station and spotted a large white squarish church with a tall spire. There under the Greek columns were the familiar faces of Côr Dewi Sant. The church is Saint John’s which was heavily bombed, both roof and interior, in 1940, then rebuilt in 1950. There were 7 community choirs; we were the only Welsh one. We rehearsed our 3 songs downstairs before going on stage. The adjudicators gave us a glowing report and we celebrated with tea and delicious cakes. A wonderful day of community singing and our first choir trip to ‘The big Smoke’!
