Music by Candlelight
One of the most eagerly awaited and most magical musical events of the year is the Music by Candlelight in St Peter’s Church. The combination of the church’s architecture lit by hundreds of candles, favourite anthems sung by the Chapel Choir, moving readings from Year 8 boys, and hymns sung by everyone present produces a memorable evening which allows time out of our busy lives for reflection and the recharging of batteries, and raises our thoughts heavenwards.
We were delighted to welcome back two music scholars from last year, Henry and Alex and it was lovely to hear their deepening rich voices in their chosen solos. Harry and Harry accompanied the congregational hymns on trumpet and the evening was completed with a lantern lit walk back to school for refreshments in the Long Room. Well done to all performers.
