GIRLS' CHOIR NEWS!
St Mary’s Pro-Cathedral Girls’ Choir continues its commitment to promoting works by female composers. On Tuesday at 6pm at the Pro-Cathedral, join us in celebrating female creativity on International Women’s Day, when the Girls’ Choir will give a short presentation of works by Cecile Chaminade, Rhona Clarke, Rebecca Clarke, Hildegard von Bingen and Roxanna Panufnik.
After quite a long hiatus, the boys are back singing Vespers! There was a great excitement amongst the boys as for most of them it was there first time singing at Vespers. It's a very peaceful and intimate service which the choir has partaken in for several decades. Unfortunately, it is only planned to take place during Lent so we implore you to come join us and make a meaningful committment during Lent.
