This is Day 4 of my course. Last night we attended echo Rao evensong in Christ Church Cathedral which is part of the college campus.
It was, of course, a Book of Common Prayer (1662) liturgy, with an American choir, Zephyrus, leading the service.
Today, at lunch, a group of us tried to have lunch at the pub called ‘The Eagle and Child’ a favourite haunt of ‘The Inklings’, CHLewis, Tolkien, Charles Williams.
Sadly they completely mucked up our booking, so we left and ate elsewhere. No matter to me because I discovered my friend Brad was in Oxford so I joined him and his host Alan for drinks in Alan’s penthouse
And dinner at a local Chinese restaurant in Jericho, a gentrified area of Oxford, just north of the colleges.
A very smart and unexpected evening.
