Evensong at Winchester Cathedral

On 24th February, the Chamber Choir sang evensong at Winchester Cathedral. This was an exciting opportunity to sing in an amazing venue accompanied by one of the cathedral’s organists. Students learned about the traditional elements of an evensong service and were able to develop their skills singing Psalms and Responses, a new experience for many. They were also able to put into practice all that they had learnt singing alongside the choir at Worcester College, Oxford, a few weeks previously. Their performance of Stanford’s ‘For Lo I Raise Up’ was particularly rousing, and special commendation should go to Phil Normand, Rhianna Jones, Holly Smart and Angus Armstrong for their solo contributions.
