This has been an exciting and busy week for the Recital Choir. After an intense rehearsal period they joined with the senior choir and headed to Magdalene College, Cambridge on Saturday to sing the evensong service.
The intimate, medieval chapel was a delightful venue, even more special when we learned that Old Pauline Samuel Pepys went on to study at Magdalene. The service was very well attended and the choir’s rendition of Dyson’s nunc dimittis was a truly sublime moment.
Monday was another special and memorable day. The choir headed out at lunchtime to rehearse in the song school in the crypt of St Paul’s Cathedral. Under the direction of SPS Director of Music, Mark Wilderspin, the boys had an intense and productive rehearsal before heading up to the cathedral floor to sing evensong to celebrate the feast of Saint Paul. Their sound in the cathedral was balanced and joyful. Purcell’s ‘Remember Lord, Not Our Offences’ was a poignant highlight. Many thanks to Mr Corrigan for leading these excursions and congratulations to all on a job well done!
