"'Tis visible silence"

Amazingly, and seemingly quite by chance, I just discoverd this video of Ian Bostridge singing Ralph Vaughan Williams's "Silent Noon" (quite wonderfully) on a blog I'd never read before; I browsed to the blog out of curiousity after reading a comment the blogger had left on still another blog (ah, the strange provenance of information discovered online). And, even more amazingly, the blog to which this video had been posted is called "All Manner of Thing" (http://cburrell.wordpress.com/), a quote from Blessed Julian of Norwich which my friend John Allitt used often to say to me: "All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well."
