Improvisation on the church organ. St Peter's is a beautiful medieval church, located in an attractive tree-filled churchyard in Rutland, England. Its great treasure is its Norman arcade, dating to around 1160 and fabulously carved with zig-zags and lozenge shapes. This was rescued from serious decay and respectfully restored in 1862.
