This service, organised by the Hereford Cathedral School, gives pupils from schools all over the county the chance to perform in the Cathedral and Lucy and I were the gusts of Paul Smith BSc, Headmaster.
Schools included Cross Ash Primary School, who sang “Once in Royal David’s City” in Welsh, St Paul’s Church of England Primary School, Bishop Hooper and Pembridge Primary Schools, Gorsley Goffs Primary School, Bishops Castle Primary School and, of course, the Hereford Cathedral School.
The singing was excellent, and the pupils obviously appreciated the chance to perform in the splendid space of the Cathedral.
They had no difficulty filling it with sound and will no doubt remember the service as clearly as we will. It was clearly an example of very successful organisation by the Cathedral School.
