The Schola Cantorum sang Choral Evensong (sung evening prayer) at Leicester Cathedral for Holy Week on Wednesday 23 March. For this occasion we joined together with friends from the choir of The Peterborough School who travelled over for the rehearsal and service.
The combined choirs were directed by Louise Reid who is a highly accomplished organist, choral director and singer and the result was amazing. This was a beautiful occasion with restrained music reflecting the solemnity of Holy Week. Our Schola is already looking forward to a return visit to sing in the Norman splendour of Peterborough’s cathedral which is 900 years old next year.
