Potato danger at Chislehurst

At St Mary's, Chislehurst today for lunch, I was concerned to see a suspiciously large bowl of potatoes. Fr Briggs assures me that he obtained these at a good price from Sainsburys and that he intends to eat them rather than use them in the Liturgy. I am happy to take him at his word although I wonder whether I should send over some heavies in case a couple of potatoes attempt to muscle in on his traditional Mass this evening as Deacon and Subdeacon.

Before leaving, I was able to play Father the first track of an excellent CD that was lent to me by Chris Strudley: André Isoir playing a collection entitled "L'orgue au Second Empire" (sample) featuring compositions by Lefebure-Wely, Donizetti and others. Very appropriate for the initial burial place of Napoleon III.
