Journal and Memorandum of my last Examination o f the Cathedral and Collegiate Church o f St. Aidans.

ST. AmANS Is little visited by tourists for three reasons. Firstly, it is out of the way. Secondly, it lacks any richness of decoration-a large collegiate church out on the Celtic marshes naturally suffered a"denudation" and "dereliction" more thorough and prolonged than did those nearer the Continent and the Counter Reformation. Thirdly and finally, it suffered last of the cathedrals. Restoration, as we know, went through three stages: a first stage of agreed iconoclasm in the name of a wholly inadequate knowledge; a second, of agreed preservation in the name of scholarly agnosticism; and a third stage, when all agreement vanished and every chapter did what was right in its own eyes. St. Aidans felt the full force of this final attack. A rich brewer gave the money; a dictatorial dean the impetus. With St. Aidans the synoptic warning was reversed: to him that hath nothing, to him shall be given even that which he never could have had.

As an undergraduate he had watched with the enthusiasm of a Josiah the great nineteenth-century vaudeville organs torn out like lying tongues from the cathedrals and installed in their stead those demure instruments on which Bach's polyphony may be rendered.
