The Colyer-Fergusson Concert 2015, March 14. The University of Kent Chorus and Symphony Orchestra were rehearsing Verdi’s Requiem. This was their last rehearsal before the actual concert that would begin at 7:30 PM. We were surprised at being encouraged to come in and tour the cathedral even during a rehearsal. The female soloist was absolutely amazing. What a glorious musical backdrop for our cathedral tour!
I'm quite certain that there would have been no empty chairs at 7:30 PM.
More of the interior of Canterbury Cathedral in next week's Anglophile Friday, including the Thomas Becket candle.
P.S. I came upon this website with How They Built Canterbury Cathedral. I think you might find it interesting. I enjoyed the information and sketches of the cathedral.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
