ELY Cathedral Girls’ Choir’s Director of Music, Sarah MacDonald, has been honoured as an Associate of the Royal School of Church Music.
The award is for achievements in church music and/or liturgy of national significance.
The citation reads: “Sarah MacDonald directs the chapel music of Selwyn College Cambridge, and the girls’ choir at Ely Cathedral. She has raised the profile of both and championed unfamiliar repertory and young composers in her recording projects, as well as encouraging and influencing a body of church musicians early in their careers. As a Canadian, she fosters links across the Atlantic.”
