Canford School sing joint evensong with the mixed choir

The mixed choir was delighted to host the chamber choir of Canford School who sang a joint evensong service in the chapel on November 10th. 

Former organ scholar Mr Chris Sparkhall (now Director  of Music at Canford School) conducted part of the service which included music by McKie, Harwood, and Ireland. 

The pupils of Canford enjoyed a brief tour of the college (despite current building works on the front quad), before meeting choral and organ scholars over tea and cake before the rehearsal. 

Last week, the mixed choir sang evensong in St Peter’s College chapel combined with the choir of St. Peter’s, singing music by Rachmaninov, Howells and Harris. It was a pleasure for Worcester’s choir to return once again to St. Peter’s, and Worcester College looks forward to welcoming them back in 2017.
