Area Chamber Choir weekend at St Albans Cathedral

The Area Chamber Choir again had the privilege of sing the services at St Albans Cathedral on Saturday September 8th 2018 (the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary) and Sunday September 9th. We sang Evensong both days and the Sung Eucharist on the Sunday morning.

 
We began by rehearsing in the Song School in the Deanery before moving down to the glorious acoustic of the Cathedral.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable weekend and we are grateful to our director Chris Muhley and Nicholas King who played the organ, and to Helen Carter for her administrative work.

We will sing at the Cathedral again on Saturday December 29th.
