I know I’m biased having been a chorister at Ely Cathedral for over 4 years in the 1960s but the building has to be one of the most magnificent in the country and it’s setting – you can see it for miles around – is superb. So the chance to sing there in October as part of Huntingdon Male Voice Choir’s 50th anniversary was something that I was really looking forward to. With nearly 300 men singing it did not disappoint, what an acoustic!

 

Some of the many pieces we had to sing weren’t particularly inspiring but Shall we Gather at the River? and Let all Men Sing were good fun. I also thoroughly enjoyed listening to Prime Brass. I also always enjoy meeting members of other choirs – a new audience for some old yarns! Saturday 20 October 2012 was a day to remember.
