Not under the auspices of the NECHS but of interest perhaps is that there are plans for a Solemn High Requiem on February 24th 2016 to mark the 300th anniversary of the execution of the 3rd Earl of Derwentwater.

    Very interesting programme, I must come along.
    Great news about the Requiem for the Earl.

  2. I am reading a book entitled 'Portrait of Northumberland' by Nancy Ridley (Robert Hale and Co. London). Facing page 49 there is a picture with the caption 'Hexham Priory Church where St Winifred was bishop'. You live and learn.
