Three Choirs Evensong




Sunday 29th April four of us travelled to Llandaff Cathedral to attend the normal Evensong service. However, this evening was very special indeed. We were privileged to have the combined choirs of Brecon, Llandaff and Newport Cathedrals - approximately 65 young choristers - girls and boys, and 30 or so men. We heard beautiful singingof well known hymns and anthems. The choir even sang the repeat chorus of Cwm Rhondda just as happens at rugby matches - very uplifting! This was actually the second service involving the three Cathedral choirs and the plan is to sing annually at different venues - next years event will be held on 19th May 2019 at Brecon Cathedral.

We all enjoyed the service, the singing and the superb music and plan to be at Brecon next May!
