Dozens of pupils from Chigwell School’s Chapel Choir had the privilege to conduct the evensong service at St Paul’s Cathedral, in central London.
Talented singers from the school in High Road, Chigwell, led the worship in the iconic venue last week in front of thousands of listeners. The service was also a farewell to some members of the choir leaving the school to pursue further education.
The music by Kenneth Leighton was a difficult programme of canticles and responses, with Simon Winters playing the great organ, and resonated up in the dome.
The school said the event was “an honour”.
In a statement, it added: “The choir members were outstanding in their maturity, musicality and deportment, with attention to the minutia that the occasion demanded. They are great ambassadors for the school.”
