Strange, she thought, pausing on the landing, and assembling that diamond shape, that single person, strange how a mistress knows the very moment, the temper of her house! Faint sounds rose in spirals up the well of the stairs; the swish of a mop; tapping; knocking; a loudness when the front door opened; a voice repeating a message in the basement; the chink of silver on a tray; clean silver for a party. All was for the party.
This week, Buildings. We made a trip to St Peter's Seminary at Cardross, near Glasgow. A seminary is a training college for priests, and this one is quite spectacular. It was built in the '60s, but it's already derelict - a modern masterpiece with the atmosphere of an ancient ruin. We spoke to Mark Baines at GSA about this intriguing building. While you're listening, you can look at pictures on our blog. We also have half a feature on the fascinating London Sound Survey. More on this next time when our theme is Ghosts.16:00 - 17:00
