Socially-distanced Choir


My favourite piece of choral music (especially In Paradisum from 55:40) which has some rather raw emotional connections to my stint at Cambridge, and ever since.

The final note...

The Chapel at Trinity College was initiated in the mid-sixteenth century by the Catholic Mary Tudor and then completed by her Protestant half-sister Elizabeth, Anne Boleyn's daughter.
The ante-chapel features Roubiliac’s statue of Isaac Newton, which was carved roughly a hundred years after he graduated from Trinity.

I think St John's Choir may just have nailed that ending even better...
