A Diary of the Plague Year: Day 2 18 March 2020

21.20 Farewell to Stromness.  Just heard this on the radio. So Poignant.  We met Sir Peter Maxwell Davies in the High Street in Kirkwall when we went to the St Magnus Festival. He could not have been more charming or humble. He died the following year and we saw him at the Proms that year too.  London, Orkney, the Proms – it feels like another world, a long time ago.
