Salisbury School Photo

From the archives ... Church of St Gregory & St Martin, Kent

March 2017

Fifty years on ...

The Church of St Gregory and St Martin in Wye, Kent, the vicar of which is the Reverend Ravi Holy, (no, this is not 1 April), have recently taken delivery of a set of Charterhouse stacking benches to enable the church to use their nave in more flexible ways. This includes the accommodation of the world-famous Wye Music Festival, and the Ashford Choral Society whose principal conductor is the counter-tenor, Mark Deller.

Not many know that, in a previous existence, Mark was a teacher of French and a form-master at the Salisbury Cathedral School, when he was singing as a lay-clerk in the cathedral choir.

Here is an extract of the school photo taken in 1968 showing Mark in the front row, and me (his former pupil), aged 11, in the back row!

Funny how the Wheel of Time rolls by.
