Choir Sing at St Asaph Cathedral – August 2019

The Choir of St Aelhaiarn’s, augmented by volunteers from Guilsfield Singers, sang for both the morning Sung Eucharist service and the afternoon Choral Evensong Service at St Asaph Cathedral on Sunday 18th August 2019, whilst the Cathedral Choir were on holiday.  Twenty six choristers plus Choir Director and organist travelled from Guilsfield along with a number of church members and supporters on what turned out to be a lovely sunny day after some early rain.  This made for a very enjoyable occasion; with us all being made very welcome by the Cathedral staff and congregation.  Between the services we enjoyed a good lunch in the Cathedral tea rooms.  Despite any nerves, the Choir really enjoyed singing for the services and their efforts were greatly appreciated.  Our organist, Philip, was even heard to remark, after he had found out how to get the organ working, that he had had the time of his life.  The coach carrying the majority of those travelling arrived back in Guilsfield at around 6:00pm with everyone having had a wonderful day out and the Choir pleased with their efforts and a great credit to the Church, which can be very proud of them.  Further pictures can be found on the Choir @ St Asaph page.
