Notes from an ex-Chorister Parent

October 26, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

After three wonderful years, our youngest son, Eddie, has now left the Choir at Gloucester Cathedral. It has been a huge privilege to be with him and the other choristers under the watchful eye of Adrian Partington, the Director of Music. Choral Evensong is a wonderful English tradition - probably the most beautiful of all church services.

Sue and I have been Eddie's Roadies for the last three years. Being a chorister, singing at least 6 days out of 7, is just like being a professional musician. 1000 different pieces of music sung each year in Gloucester. That's why Gloucester has one of the very best Cathedral Choirs in Britain. Very few other choirs have their boys singing with such regularity.

So now, we are all looking forward to a short break before he returns to the Cathedral Youth Choir with his new manly voice.
