OUR Chamber Choir had a fantastic afternoon at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle yesterday (February 2nd).
Members of the Year 11-13 Choir sang their hearts out at the Chapel’s Candlemas Eucharist and received so many compliments from both the congregation and clergy.
Kirsty Wright, Teacher of Music at King’s Ely and who attended the trip, said: “The students were all excellent ambassadors for the school. We were lucky enough to begin the service as a red sun set through the enormous West Window – a truly stunning setting.
“In the break between rehearsal and service, we were able to have a short look around outside and to hunt out a few famous names within the Chapel itself. I’m not sure if anyone found Henry VIII but we did all see the resting place of George VI and his wife, Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.
“Thank you to Miss Briggs for directing, to Mr North and Mr Harding for singing, and to everyone involved for making it such a pleasure of a trip and one that we will remember for a very long time.”
The opportunity to sing at St George’s Chapel happened just days after members of our Chapel Choir sang Evensong at St. Paul’s Cathedral, London.
Well done Chamber Choir – you did yourselves and the school proud!
