At the beginning of the Lent Term, the Choristers had the privilege of singing Evensong at St Paul’s Cathedral, London. St Paul’s is probably one of the most famous cathedrals in the world, and the Choristers rehearsed their performance in the song school which is in the crypt where many great men and women, including Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington, are buried.
The cathedral was packed for Evensong with 200 or more guests seated under the impressive dome and the quire was also full of family, friends and supporters from Tewkesbury Abbey and Dean Close.
Chorister Morgan said, “It was a really enjoyable day and a wonderful experience, even though I was very tired as I didn’t get home until quite late. We sang some amazing music and lots of people told us how beautiful we sounded in the magnificent cathedral”
