We were delighted that the Choristers’ Course was resurrected this year, with 51 boys from the Junior Form to the Upper Sixth Form spending a busy and successful week in Wells, singing at both the Cathedral and at Bath Abbey.
Before the pandemic, Trinity Choristers had visited a cathedral, usually in the UK, every Easter vacation for over 50 years. In 2020 they were due to sing services at Wells Cathedral and Bath Abbey but sadly the visit had to be cancelled due to COVID-19.
Many happy hours were spent each day singing and tremendous progress was made but time was also found to visit Wookey Hole, play football and tennis, and to make friends in other year groups. A hardy group of runners also got up early to run around the Somerset hills.
The highlight of the course was the evensong in Bath Abbey, where current choristers were joined by alumni choristers from various generations.
“It was particularly good to celebrate ten years of girls at Trinity as Hannah-Louise Vine, a former member of our Girls’ Choir, joined the otherwise all-male group of former students,” said Mr Swinson. “We are most grateful to former chorister, Martin French, for all his work in organising the trip and to Christopher Dowie, who played the organ so brilliantly for us.”
