With Easter being very late this year, there is a large liturgical gap this month following Candlemas on 2 February; Ash Wednesday actually falls in March. Even so, we fill it with two services of Choral Evensong. In addition, on Saturday 15 February, the girl choristers are singing Choral Evensong in Portsmouth Cathedral, and the next day, they and the boys are going through their paces at the Abbey’s inaugural wedding fair, Experience your Romsey Wedding.
Looking back for a moment, as well as playing a full part in the major Christmas services, boys, girls and men made a valued contribution to the George’s Trust Christmas concert. The boys also took part in the Romsey Singers’ performance of Britten’s cantata St. Nicolas; several of them sang solos very confidently.
