Dear Roland


I wanted to write o thank you for your part in Season Songs and to congratulate you and the Winkleigh Singers on a quite memorable performance. It is remarkable that we have a group of such accomplished singers in North Devon and that, under your guidance, the group is prepared to undertake such a demanding project. The singing was impressive throughout and there were moments of sheer magic.


Please convey my (our) appreciation and thanks to everyone involved,


With All Best Wishes
