There is much excitement around the Minster, at the moment. In the last two weeks, we have welcomed five new choristers, all from Lisle Marsden Primary Academy, after our Director of Music listened to every child in the top three year groups at the Academy.
Last Sunday saw Amy-Louise, Jessica, and Lilly singing at their first service, and doing so extremely well. They not only managed to sing all of the music well, but also processed as though they had been doing so all of their lives. At the same service, Jack was awarded with his surplice, marking his admission as a full chorister within the Choir.
Since then, at our most recent rehearsal, we were delighted to welcome Maurice to the ranks, who did very well, too.
We have also been pleased to have the support of some additional helpers in our rehearsals, to help our new members to settle in. Thank you to Mrs Maxson, Mrs McNally, and to Choral Scholars Charlie, David, and Lyle.
