Sweet Music

About 10 years ago I was poking around Corbridge parish church about 12 miles west of Newcastle. A quartet were practising for a concert they were giving in the church that night. I had a chat to the slightly Beethovian cellist and quartet leader, and I asked him where he was from - they were giving the concert as part of a small local festival. Oh, from the south east, he said. I was from the south east, so I asked where. Oh, from a place called Berkhamsted, he said. I was from Berkhamsted (a town between Watford and Aylesbury), so I asked where. Oh, Bridgwater Road, he said. I had walked up and down it many times. I had a cousin in the town and she was musical (I had not seen her for years but we had grown up together), so I took a shot and asked if he knew a cellist from Berkhamsted called Philippa Cooper. Oh, I married her, he said.
