Today at the Cathedral we were treated to a wonderful recital given by the immensely talented harpist, Caroline Nilsson-Breman.
Caroline’s magnificent instrument sounded truly mellifluous and seemed to be perfectly matched to the Cathedral’s acoustics.
A large and highly appreciative audience were pleased to show their warm appreciation of this superb performance.
We hope that Caroline will grace us again with her presence in future recitals.
