It was a singular honour to make a presentation for the Earl and Countess of Wessex. The Choir sang the hymn ‘God Save the Queen’, national anthem of the United Kingdom, followed by the Hallelujah Chorus conducted by the Principal on special request of the Choirmaster.
Their Highnesses then walked up to the Chancel and spoke with the Choristers for a while, commenting how very well they sang and the lovely tone of the Choir. Their Highnesses spoke with the boys about their ages, different backgrounds, tastes of music and how often they performed and the variety of genres. Prince Edward showed particular interest in the unique acoustics in the Chapel and the differences of singing from within the Chancel facing each other (national anthem) and the Hallelujah Chorus facing the audience.
Prince Edward is an Alumnus of Jesus College, Cambridge, whose Choir performed with the Trinity College Choir in 2014.
