We were delighted to welcome Ted and Pax, two of the Truro Cathedral choristers, to join us at Truro Prep School from the Easter break. They spent the half-term holiday on tour in Germany and Switzerland with the choir; this included two very moving and beautiful ecumenical services with readings in German and English and carefully chosen hymns, well-known in both languages where the congregation sang different verses in German or English.
The trip was an illustration of the unity that music and fellowship across borders can bring. Pax says:
“We sang in Salem Parish Chapel (in Germany) and sang twice in Salem Minster. We sang the Chichester Psalms and we sang Handel’s Coronation Anthems – the King Shall Rejoice. Mr Gray said that it was one of the best trips that the choristers have ever been on.”
