Bristol Cathedral, founded in 1140 is an exquisite example of medieval architecture and England’s only hall church Cathedral. Recently, DCPS Chamber choir were fortunate enough to be invited to host their own concert there.
Amidst the ancient stones that created fabulous acoustics the girls sang nine pieces including ‘Precious Moments’ by Will Todd and ‘I remember’ by Sarah Quartel. Two of the girls also performed solo pieces, Emily Cox played on the piano and Talia Recine played the violin. Pupil, Olivia Thomas said, “It was a great experience, the singing was fabulous. The best part of the day was the ice-cream!”
Rachel Bowen, the choir conductor added, “I was hugely proud of the girls. The ice-cream was great, but the singing was sublime!”
One visitor to the cathedral that day was so impressed with the girls’ performance she wrote to the School. “I have just returned home from a fabulous lunchtime concert by your Chamber choir. I would like you to convey my appreciation and thanks both to the staff and girls who took part. As a former Royal Academican I feel qualified to judge the standard and it was superb. The programme was delightful and the girls sang with enjoyment and skill – a credit to their conductor. Both soloists were very talented and deserve a special mention,” said Valerie Ingram.
