Last Tour

15/16 February 2014 - Worcester Cathedral

An extremely successful weekend despite worries as to whether we would get there because of the flooding all around Worcester.  However the Cathedral and the Hotel were all dry and warm and we all enjoyed the hospitality of the staff again.

We sang the Michael Wise Service for the Saturday Evensong together with another Philip Moore piece - All Wisdom Cometh from the Lord.  For Eucharist on Sunday morning we used the Haydn Nelson Mass which was glorious to sing in that lovely building.  The Anthem was Beati Quorum by Stanford.  For Sunday Evensong we sang the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis by Wood and our Anthem was Cantate Domino by Shutz.

Some singers were unable to be with us due to problems caused by the extreme weather.

16/17 February 2013 - Exeter Cathedral

Another visit to Exeter after a long break.  Lovely to be back there and sang the Philip Moore Third Service for Evensong on Saturday and Byrd Service for 5 voices at Eucharist on Sunday morning.  We finished off the weekend with a favourite at Evenson - Noble in B Minor Magnificat and Nunch Dimittis.

3/4 November - Chichester Cathedral

First visit to Chichester and an enjoyable weekend as always.  Hard work but worthwhile!  Four services to sing, Evensong on Saturday and then Matins, Eucharist and Evensong on Sunday.  We all survived and enjoyed our visit.

21/22 April 2012 - Wells Cathedral

This was the second time we have visited Wells Cathedral and we were made very welcome by the team of Virgers.  There were new practice rooms and a new refectory and shop.  The weekend services all went very well and the Cathedral staff were very complimentary.  We had chosen to sing some movements from Dvorak's Mass in D majopr for the Eucharist service and they were wonderful to sing in that beautiful building.  We look forward to going back to Wells again!

30 October 2011 - St Albans Cathedral

Just a one day visit to sing the Sunday Services.  We have successfully rrecruited some new members and this was their first opportunity to sing in such a wonderful building.  The whole day went well and we look forward to going back to St Albans in the summer of 2012.

Workshop: 12 March 2011 - Karl Jenkins The Armed Man; A Mass for Peace

Not a tour but a very successful event nevertheless!  Over 70 people attending and the event was voted a great success.  We plan another workshop for 2012 on 10th March 2012.  More details soon.

9/10 April 2011- Ripon Cathedral

Another visit to Ripon and we received a warm welcome.  Sadly in the week before the tour we received the news that Gordon, one of our Tenors, had died very suddenly.  However we were lucky to receive singing assistance from local choristers and we dedicated our services to Gordon's memory.  We hope to go back to Ripon again.
