College Choir Perform Evensong at Gloucester Cathedral

The Chapel Choir of Abbey Gate College, under the direction of Director of Music Stewart Smith, sang Evensong in Gloucester Cathedral on Easter Bank Holiday Monday to a congregation of tourists, residents and parents. 

The magnificent building which boasts one of the best acoustics in the country resounded to music by Charles Villiers Stanford and Charles Wood.  The Choir was delighted to be invited to return to Gloucester this year and was in fact the first Cathedral Stewart Smith took the Choir to in 1984. 

This was the start of a run of annual Cathedral and foreign tours by the Choir which has included St Pauls Cathedral London, St Patrick's New York and St Mark's Venice. Stewart Smith's last tour with the choir will be to Lincoln Cathedral in July before his retirement after 39 years with the school.
