A day of music

The members of the St Martin’s Ampleforth Schola (school choir) joined in with three other schools at the Ampleforth College Choral Day this week.  

The children started with singing rehearsals led by Mr Seymour, Ampleforth College’s Director of Music.   The programme of music that the children learnt for the day was as follows:

Introit: A Child’s Prayer (Anderson)

Hymn: Praise My Soul

Magnificat:  Tell Out My Soul (Woodlands)

Psalm: 23 (Goodall)

Nunc Dimittis (Dyson)

Anthem: Litany to the Holy Spirit (Hurford)

Hymn: O Worship the King

Following a delicious buffet lunch, there were more rehearsals before the afternoon service in the Abbey Church.   The children’s voices sounded magnificent in the Abbey and the singing was thoroughly enjoyed by all the parents and visitors.

Well done everyone
