The Choir will make their first public appearance at Friday’s Diamond Jubilee Mass
We are grateful to our Choir Master, Mr Hills, who has been leading the choir this term. Thirty pupils strong already, they will sing the Communion Motet at our Diamond Jubilee Mass this Friday. The choir were very excited by their new cassocks and cottas today - we look forward to hearing them more regularly at Mass - and by next Autumn, weekly. Sincere congratulations to them for their hard work at rehearsals every Friday. With Mr Hills excellent direction, the choir are singing beautifully - keep up the great work all.
Richard Hills FRCO is one of the very few musicians to have truly mastered the divide between the world of the classical organ and that of the theatre organ. Having trained under William Whitehead at Kings School Rochester, he became Organ Scholar at Exeter College Oxford, studying with David Sanger. Further organ scholarships followed at Portsmouth Cathedral and Westminster Abbey. He now pursues a freelance career and is Organist at St Mary's, Bourne Street. We are thrilled that he leads our choir and teaches music for us twice each week.
