Minerva Voices singing at Canterbury Cathedral: watch on demand

Congratulations to Minerva Voices and organist John Wyatt, who yesterday sang Choral Evensong at Canterbury Cathedral. Conducted by Your Loyal Correspondent, the choir presented contemporary settings by Jeremy Woodside and Justin Breame as part of the music sung during the service.

The service was livestreamed on the Cathedral’s YouTube channel, and can be viewed below:

Well done to all the students involved; the Choir will be in action again at the start of June, singing as part of the choral concert in the Cathedral Crypt on Friday 2 June as part of Summer Music Week.

A re-sounding success: Minerva Voices at Studio 3 Gallery

Congratulations to Minerva Voices on the choir’s performance this lunchtime in Studio 3 Gallery.

An appreciative audience (which continued to grow after the concert had started!) was treated to some well-crafted, nuanced performing and some genuinely spine-tingling moments.

Pictured here, in both rehearsal and performance, are the choir with assistant conductor, Joe Prescott, working amidst the gallery’s latest exhibition, After the Break.

Bravo, team.
