Gregorian chants

1990-1999

Throughout the Ashley years, every Sunday from 7 a.m. till noon, guests who wandered into the snooker room heard Gregorian chants. This was what B.A. wanted -- it was an absolute, no question (we did it every Sunday), and shows his cultural background. A steamer trunk sat in the snooker room which housed a stereo system, and we (the porters) set up the cd's in the system so the chants would be heard.

Future Generations

"People who document histories of special people, places and events are selfless in the same way that are those who plant trees. The result is valued more by each future generation. Thank you for doing this."
