Thank you Irene for giving us such a fabulous hundredth review - it was a real pleasure to have you all and we are glad it worked out well. Listening to the choirs rehearse in the house was magical and very special for us and we found it very emotional. We wish you every success in Glasgow next year - might have to pop up and have a wee listen! Good luck from all at the Cedars
