I walked into St Paul's Cathedral in Melbourne this morning, and no one at all was in sight, so I found a cosy spot, whipped out my warmstone C and played through a slightly rough rendition of "As The Deer Pants" - one of my fave gospel songs.

The acoustics were to die for - the music seemed like it echoed throughout the whole buiding. When I finished, one of the vergers who work there approached me. I thought I was in trouble, but then he complimented me on the lovely music and invited me to keep playing! I didn't have the time then, but I will definitely go back again, and take advantage of those gorgeous acoustics.

Oh, how neat that must have been! I would loved to have heard it, seen the cathedral. What a fantastic opportunity.

Sounds like you had a great place to play, I have never been in one of those fancy Cathedral things. I guess I am just too much of a country boy.  As the Deer  in the key of D is one of my goto songs on the Ocarina, it also sounds great on the Harmonica as well.

It was just too good an opportunity to pass up, although, I admit I probably wouldn't have been brave enough to do it if there had been anyone in there to start with.   Grin
