Moved To Tears In The Minster.

We stayed a day and night at Wimborne Minster Folk Festival on our tour of parts of Hardy's Wessex.  Thomas Hardy himself often use to sit in the Minster and contemplate.

We watched the excellent folk singer Amy Goddard perform some of her songs in a concert in the Minster.  One song of hers in particular moved me to tears.  I wasn't blubbing like a baby but the tears started rolling down my cheeks.   It was very heavy for me on a Sunday afternoon.

It's a beautiful and poignant song.  One of the comments on the video points out that it was the last day of the school term.  If you get a chance to see Amy perform in Blighty.  Don't miss her.  I will post a more cheerful blog tomorrow.


  1. She has a lovely voice, I could hear all the words. I have never heard of her but will look out for her name name. Thanks Dave.

  2. Thanks Rachel. Amy does have a lovely voice. She does an excellent cover of Bruce Springteens 'Dancing In The Dark'. Have a look on good old You Tube for more of her songs.

  3. Aberfan - I remember it well, and still with the same sadness. I too would have been tearful listening to Amy sing.

  4. Hi Valerie. I would have been about five or six when the tragedy happened but I can still remember the black and white pictures on the news. Amy has a beautiful voice and the Minster was the perfect setting for her song. Thanks!

  6. I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world has crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could leave a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to Herpes). I went from churches to churches but soon found that my case needed urgent attention as I was growing lean due to fear of dying anytime soon. In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought for solutions from the herbal world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could severe, cos I heard that the African Herbs had a cure to the Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr Itua(A powerful African Herbal Doctor), who offered to help me at a monetary fee. I had to comply as this was my final bus-stop to receiving a perfect healing. My last resolve was to take my life by myself, should this plan fail. At last it worked out well. He gave me some steps to follow and I meticulously carried out all his instructions. Last month, to be precise, I went back to the hospital to conduct another test and to my amazement, the results showed that negative,Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Desease…Cancer,Hiv,Herpes,aLS,cOPD Hepatitis B,Liver Inflammatory,Diabetis,Fribroid, Dercum,Get Your Ex Back, You can free yourself of this Herpes virus by consulting this great African Herbal Doctor via this e-mail: or call and whatsapp him on +2348149277967 He will help you and his herb medication is sure. he has the cure on all disease .You can talk to me on INSTAGRAM..tashamoore219....
