Senior Chamber Choir performs in Liverpool Cathedral

03 Jun 2013

The Girls’ School Senior Chamber Choir was privileged to be given the opportunity to perform Choral Evensong on April 24th, with thanks to the Dean and Chapter of Liverpool Cathedral. The venue, which hosts visiting choirs including cathedral choirs, poses considerable challenges; the choir stalls are situated either side of the awesome chancel with a considerable distance between them. To the choir’s credit, they ‘filled the space’ throughout the service and made the most the cathedral’s wonderful acoustics.

Natasha Agarwal, soprano, performed Faure’s ‘Pie Jesu’ quite exquisitely, prior to the service, and the Responses were led by Nell Vitty, who sang beautifully with a confident, crystal-clear tone. The girls were ably directed by Marie Bush, Deputy Headmistress at the school, and accompanied by distinguished musician Daniel Bishop, Associate Organist, Liverpool Cathedral.

The girls loved every minute of this memorable experience; the choir’s procession (in pairs) through the chancel, to the accompaniment of the splendid organ, was truly unforgettable!

Following this magnificent success, the choir has been invited back for a future Evensong Service. What an accolade! We can’t wait…
