Vale of Glamorgan choristers performed at Exeter Cathedral earlier this month.

Invited to grace the hallowed church were the combined choirs from All Saints, Barry and St Peter’s Church, Peterston-super-Ely. Both choirs are conducted by the accomplished James Bull BMus.

The choirs typically sing choral Eucharists and Evensongs in their own churches, but will occasionally team up for bigger events.

The 35-strong group, aged between 12 and 80, confidently delivered a testing repertoire.

Their performance was complemented by the accompaniment of renowned organist Jeff Howard.

They sang the George Dyson's Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis in F and the Welsh anthem "O Ddewi Sanctaidd" by Meirion Wynn Jones at the Evensong on June 1.

The choir then performed for the Choral Eucharist for Corpus Christi on June 2.

The service began with "Oculi Omnium" by Charles Wood, followed by the mass setting Messe Solenelle by Louis Vierne, and concluded with the much-loved anthem Panis Angelicus by Cesar Frank.

The celebrant even spoke some Welsh, saying: "Yr enw'r Tad, a'r Mab, a'r Ysbryd Glân."

Their final Evensong was demanding yet rewarding, with three long psalms followed by Herbert Howells' Collegium Regale Evening Canticles, and Vaughan Williams’ energetic "Let all the world in every corner sing".

Choir members were satisfied with their performance and appreciated the warm welcome received from the Exeter Cathedral staff and clergy.

Bathed in warm and sunny weather, the event proved enjoyable for all participants.

The choir is now looking forward to their performance next year at Salisbury Cathedral.
