.... but finally a new window has been fitted to the sitting room. The problem started about 5 years ago when the seal of the double-glazed unit failed. At first it was just a little discolouration in the corner but eventually the entire window became opaque (see the previous post for photo). The size of the window made it very difficult to replace as no local companies were able to manufacture such a big unit. Last year I tracked down a company in Angoulême who undertook the job, but in the end they pulled out because their attempts to create the unit failed. Twelve months further on, and they have finally solved the manufacturing difficulty by using thicker glass and removing one of the two rubber seals with which the old unit was mounted. A silicone seal has been used instead, and the final result is most satisfactory. It will take the bank account a while to recover, however!!
Have you sampled any of the live recordings of choral music featured on the Moments Musicaux page of the website?
Or there's a Christmas Carol selection available here.
