Abbey Gate College Chapel Choir Perform at St Paul's Cathedral for 30th Year



Abbey Gate College Chapel Choir were honoured to perform Evensong under the world-famous dome at St Paul's Cathedral on Easter Monday.

For the 30th consecutive year, the 45 members of the choir performed in one of the world’s most beautiful buildings to a congregation of over 800.

Conducted by Head of Music, Mr Andrews, the choir performed pieces including 'Canticles in D Major' by George Dyson and Balfour Gardiner’s 'Evening Hymn'.

Mr Andrews said: "The choir were professional in both their singing and conduct, and the standard was incredibly high. The pupils were unfazed by the vast space and eight second echo within the centuries old building. It is testament to their ability that they were able to cope so admirably with the challenges."
