Sir: The festal gown for the Cambridge Doctor of Music is exotic and beautiful: cream damask, lined with dark-cherry satin. The proctors admired and approved Dame Kiri Te Kanawa's style of dress when she was awarded this degree honoris causa on Tuesday: it complemented her gown perfectly, and she appeared equally exotic and beautiful ("Dame Kiri Strikes a different note", 9 July).

We have heard no note of discord on this issue whatsoever, within the university.
