Afternoon Chorus

Ripon Cathedral

Ripon Cathedral

I’ve had a few days away from South Shields staying near Ripon in North Yorkshire where I sort of stumbled upon this event in the cathedral on Saturday afternoon. It was a rehearsal by the Leeds Festival Chorus with a full orchestra in the cossing, there was to be a concert in the evening featuring extensive works by Bach. The sounds of this huge choir and orchestra were absolutely awesome and uplifting, I’m glad that I popped in.
