Christmas choristers & cathedrals

This Christmas season I’ve had the treat of singing in two of London’s cathedrals with my choir the Oriana Singers. The Tunbridge Wells choir specialises in cathedral and sacred music and enjoys visiting cathedrals across the UK to provide relief to resident choirs, and choral services to local parishioners and tourists alike. This year the choir has sung in a good number, including a wonderful week of sung services in Truro.

It’s a unique experience at every cathedral as, just like churches, each place of worship has its own “flavour”, traditions, clergy, and of course architecture. This week we have had the pleasure of singing in two very different cathedrals, Westminster Abbey and Southwark Cathedral: a mean feat alongside turkey, mince pies, merriment and mulled wine! It’s been a great distraction from the bustle of Christmas and lovely opportunity for reflection and sacred song.

My favourites of this season were the Christmas classic Howells’ There is a Little Door and Amner’s Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis.

Here are some photos of our travels…

…and a recording of the Howells to start keep the festive spirit alive a little longer!

Jennifer is an incredible singer. We had her with Cafe Society to play at my 40th and it was everything I could dream off- they played beautiful music, and brought a very good vibe to the party. All the guests talked about how great they were, with a repertoire of very nice songs which we loved to listen to, but at the same time allowing us to keep the conversation going. I can’t recommend her enough.

Jenny sang beautifully at our wedding in August 2019! She moved many members of the congregation to tears with her amazing singing. We absolutely loved it and would highly recommend her. Each time we meet up with friends and family that were there, they all comment on how amazing her singing was and how much they enjoyed it! She sang a Maori love song perfectly - commented the relatives from New Zealand! X

Jenny was the absolute highlight of our wedding ceremony. We picked some tricky songs and she had the whole audience joining in at the chorus. Luckily they didn't join at all points because it gave everyone a chance to hear her beautiful voice as well! I can't recommend highly enough.

Jenny was amazing from the moment I enquired about her playing the violin at our wedding ceremony. So quick to respond, helpful, friendly, flexible & professional, and was able to recommend songs and even learnt a new song for the exit music. I was so confident that she had everything under control which was invaluable and it was something on the day that I knew I just didn’t have to worry about. Jenny is so talented and it really added to the ceremony, I am so pleased that I found her! Thank you so so much!

Jenny sang at our wedding - her music set the tone and made for a truly special experience. She has a beautiful voice, is very easy to work with, and worked seamlessly with our (very exacting) venue to get everything just right. Thank you Jenny!
