Rochester Cathedral Celebrates Success in BBC Chorister of the Year

Congratulations to current Cathedral Deputy Head Chorister Edward Hyde and former Cathedral Head Chorister Rupert Walker on reaching the final of the BBC Radio 2 Young Chorister of the Year Competition.

This is a National Competition with Choristers being auditioned from the length and breadth of the Country. Only four boys are selected for the final and it is therefore a wonderful achievement that 50% of those were from King’s Rochester (the other two finalists were from Canterbury Cathedral).

The competition was won by Edward Hyde at the final held in Manchester Cathedral on October 24th 2016.

 

12th Edition of Choristers of Rochester Cathedral

I’m pleased to present (after some hard and diligent work by one of our old choristers – James Strike) the 12th edition of Choristers of Rochester Cathedral. This book contains the names and dates of all Choristers from 1679 to 2015 as well as some interesting information about cathedral music in Rochester over the years. The book has also been updated to include all Girl Choristers.

This professionally printed and published book can be purchased via me for £5 (plus postage if you’d like it posted).

Drop a line on our contact us page if you’d like one.
