Tulkinghorn is a traditional chap and thinks being a nun is a woman's job. He finds the idea of a bunch of middle-aged men wimpled-up and pretending to be lyrical nuns a little strange. For Ashurst's corporate partners, however, it's a fact of life.

Presumably 'team building' and 'getting down with the kids' is the aim. Last year junior lawyers were regaled with several numbers from the hit musical Oliver. This year it's - you've guessed it - The Sound of Music. Hence the nuns.
