On Saturday morning we had a Lutheran service at Ottery St Mary church. Ottery St Mary church has welcomed the Swedes in southwest England to its church so many times now that it has become an established tradition and we are most thankful for all the support we have got. Afterwards we invited the congregation and choir to our home for a lunch. The weather was – as usual – stunning and we were able to sit outside in the courtyard and enjoy walks in the park and meadows. And of course the choir sang for us again in our courtyard.
We took the choir for a walk in the afternoon and in the evening we went to dinner at the Folly, a separate building on the grounds of the Pig at Combe, where the pizza oven was fired up to provide a dinner.
On Sunday morning we went to High Mass at Exeter Cathedral and after the service, the choir sang again, now in the cathedral. James Mustard, the precentor at Exeter Cathedral, had invited us all to lunch afterwards in his abode in a lovely medieval house near the Cathedral.
