Senior Carol Service

Our full school community was able to attend our Carol Service at Guildford Cathedral for the first time post-Covid. All five choirs, chamber orchestra and brass ensemble performed exquisitely, leading the congregational carols and adding soaring descants. The choir-only pieces clearly demonstrated, once again, the strength of singing and the choral scene at GHS; there was a delightful mixture of unaccompanied carols as well as pieces accompanied by either organ, piano or a guitar octet. The beautiful blend of voices was spine tingling and this was especially notable when all 180 voices in the five choirs sang together in the all-choir pieces. Readings were also delivered with great clarity and authority, as the Christmas story was retold. Congratulations and sincere thanks to all musicians, readers, and to those who helped to organise the service.
