Parents and Old Reptonians joined the music department staff and the Chamber Choir which consisted of 28 pupils from across the school. Before their big performance, the Chamber Choir rehearsed in the dungeons of the Chapel and during Evensong, Repton’s Director of Music, Mr Oliver Walker, conducted from the tombstone of Henry VIII.
Repton School Chaplain, Fr Neil Roberts, commented: “Choral Evensong is the jewel in the crown of the Church of England and allows the congregation to be immersed in waves of sound which express the soul’s state. Our Chapel Chamber Choir sang beautifully and were commended by the clergy for their demeanour and musicology. I am a very proud Chaplain!”
The Chamber Choir will next sing Evensong at St Paul’s Cathedral on Monday 11th February.
