Choristers to perform in D-Day anniversary celebrations in France

Cathedral Choir

Hereford Cathedral Choir will today be taking part in a high-profile service in France to commemorate the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

The choir has been invited to sing in the Service of Thanksgiving organised by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission at Bayeux Cathedral. The service will be attended by HRH The Princess Royal, veterans, their families and international VIPs.

Tomorrow, the choir will give a short performance in the Basilica of Sainte-Thérèse de Lisieux, and later that day will sing Choral Evensong in L’église St-Pierre de Caen.

The choir's previous visit to Normandy in 2019 for the 75th anniversary was an unforgettable and moving experience for our choristers.
