Members attended Evensong in the Cathedral on Saturday 12th October 2019 which was sung by both choirs. The new Director of Music and Organist, Francesca Massey, could not have chosen a better anthem for the old choristers – Hubert Parry’s I was Glad. Following the service, the Annual General Meeting took place in the Ithamar Chapel in the crypt.
That evening, the 110th annual dinner was held in the King’s School Conference Centre. Guests were Benjamin Charles and Tom Morgan, the new Principal of King’s School and the Preparatory School respectively.
The menu was:
Pea and Yorkshire fettle croquettes
Rib-eye beef with roasted cauliflower, baton carrots and leaks mornay
Welsh rarebit with chives
Despite the disappointingly low number present, the evening was much enjoyed by all and finished with the usual rounds, sang with gusto.
