St. Lawrence Steps

feb24_20160224_0043

I’m waiting at St. Lawrence Steps, while my wife is in the piano store trying to decide whether or not she really wants a piano. She’s never played one before, and can’t read a note of music, but is keen to learn. In the church next to the store is a memorial plaque to Sarah Glover, whose father was the curate there in the early years of the nineteenth century. Sarah was the inventor of the Norwich Sol-Fa music-learning method which was a forerunner of the later Tonic Sol-Fa (doh-ray-me…) system. There are a number of musical instrument shops in the immediate vicinity; is this a coincidence, or is there something strangely psychogeographical going on?
