The Friends of Little Gidding were privileged to be invited, on Trinity Sunday, to Clare College Chapel in Cambridge, to celebrate the memory of the founder of the Little Gidding Community, Nicholas Ferrar. It was fascinating to discover how important an alumnus he had been. Not only had this stained glassed window been installed in the Chapel in his honour, but his portrait also hangs prominently in the Senior Fellows’ Common Room.
The Mass setting was by Franz Schubert, sung by the College Choir and accompanied by the Keats Quartet. It was a stunning performance in an acoustic setting that simply amplified the beauty of the music. And afterwards, we enjoyed the community atmosphere of dining in the College Refectory.
