IGREATLY ad­mire the achieve­ments of the beau­ti­ful cham­pion freerun­ner Katie Mcdon­nell, who graced the Fron­tispiece on Oc­to­ber 12, but found it poignant that this tal­ented ath­lete was pro­filed on the same day that the obit­u­ary of Anne Pash­ley (left) (1935– 2016) was pub­lished in the na­tional press. Anne, whom my late par­ents knew well, was an Olympic-medal­win­ning sprinter as well as be­ing a most gifted opera singer. She per­formed at Sadler’s Wells, Glyn­de­bourne and Alde­burgh, to great ac­claim, with re­views ap­pear­ing in the pages of COUN­TRY LIFE—I won­der how many of your read­ers re­call hear­ing her sing.
