Christian Unity at Downside Abbey

As part of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, we welcomed the Monks & Schola Cantorum of Downside Abbey and School to Wells Cathedral last Friday where they moved us with a beautiful service of Choral Vespers.

Yesterday afternoon, it was the turn of our Boy Choristers and Vicars Choral to sing Choral Evensong in the beauty of Downside Abbey. They were warmly welcomed and enjoyed singing some stirring Stanford and Cornelius in the Abbey's generous acoustics. Needless to say, the show of Christian unity was particularly strong over the tea and cake that followed!
