This event has now passed.
Our first visit to St Paul’s had been planned for October 2011. Unfortunately the Cathedral was closed just 48 hours before our visit, because of the “Occupy London” protest taking place around the Cathedral, and we were kindly hosted by Gloucester Cathedral instead.

This visit was such a success that we immediately rescheduled the St Paul’s visit, and on 29 October 2012 we went! Just over fifty (the maximum allowed by St Paul’s) members of the choir took part in the visit, and we sang a set of Responses by the Organist of Cartmel Priory, Adrian Self, the Evening Service (Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis) in B flat by Henry Smart, and the glorious eighteenth-century anthem, O Lord, look down from heaven by Jonathan Battishill.
