  • Notes from two pews

    A few years ago we were in the exciting position of considering a choice between Chorister or Quirister for our eldest son. “I have to be a Chorister” came the determined reply. On asking why that was such a firm answer, the response was “Have you seen the cathedral, I have to sing in there!”

    A year ago we had a similar discussion with our younger son. A calm and happy boy told us that he definitely wanted to be a Quirister because they were going on a tour abroad and he wanted to be at home for Christmas. 

    And so our dual journey began this term and we are all loving every minute of it! Peter and Alex get to board together and see each other regularly while we make the decision four times a week; do we head out of the back of the Yard, to the College chapel, or through the front gate to the Cathedral. What a privilege to have these choices!
