All Things Bright and Virtual:

A Celebration of Hymns

4 March 2021

We’re delighted to be a partner with Self-Isolation Choir for ‘All Things Bright and Virtual’, a celebration of hymns with introductions from Stephen Fry, Sir Bryn Terfel, Libby Purves OBE, John Rutter CBE, Alexander Armstrong, Katherine Jenkins OBE, Wynne Evans MStJ and Harry Christophers CBE, led by Ralph Allwood MBE. 

Whether you are a keen singer or you have never sung before, here’s an opportunity to enjoy learning how to sing eight of the most stirring hymns accompanied by the mighty organs of eight cathedrals and churches in the UK and the US. Do join us! All proceeds from the project will be shared between four charities supporting choral music: Cathedral Music Trust, The Choral Evensong Trust, The Royal School of Church Music  and The Rodolfus Foundation.
