As well as teaching, I also sing semi-professionally as a lay clerk in Newcastle Cathedral. Today was the chamber choir’s turn: normally this would mean a day off, but not today.
St Nicholas Cathedral is England’s most northern cathedral. There has been a church on the site for over 900 years. I’ve been singing there since September (so, hardly a notch in it’s history of almost a millennium).
