British Boys Singing!

Satisfy your Anglophilia tonight at 6:00, when the Westminster Boys’ Choir will be performing in St. Paul’s Chapel. Westminster Abbey has been training boys in addition to its adult choir for at least six centuries, but this is the first United States tour for the little lads. Their normal routine at home in England includes singing Evensong six times a week and playing cricket, which is basically living the dream.

They know their stuff, too – they’ve sung for both Queen Elizabeth II and Pope John Paul II. As Her Majesty no doubt said after seeing the choir perform, blimey. Drop in, and brag to your Music Hum professor about it tomorrow.

    @Blimey! A great performance. I’m not sure which was more entertaining: the choristers (who were excellent!) or the two little English boys (Wills and Angus; no lie) sitting next to me, talking about which song was the most boring and thanking God that the program was only one page long.

    Is there a (non-acapella) choir at Columbia? Who can join, and how?
