"Thank you very much for inviting my wife and me to Winchester Cathedral on Saturday to hear Benjamin Britten's War Requiem. We both thoroughly enjoyed the evening and were so delighted to be included. The performance was outstanding and we were thrilled to hear the soloists as well as the choirs. The excellent orchestra added to the whole occasion and I congratulate everyone involved. I do hope your performance at Tewekesbury Abbey goes equally well."
The Lord Lieutenant of Hampshire, Mr Nigel Atkinson
