On Tuesday 13th March, the Bridewell Singers from King Edward’s and Barrow Hills sang at St Brides church in London. Children and members of staff from King Edward’s and Barrow Hills came to the service. As part of the Bridewell Singers, I found it a brilliant experience to sing with a large choir made up of sopranos, altos, tenors and basses, all singing at different times. I enjoyed singing in front of the Lord Mayor and other important people. We sang ‘Zadok the Priest’ by Handel and ‘Blessed be the God and Father’ by Samuel Sebastian Wesley.
We started rehearsing with Mr Wardell last term and I know he would have been so proud of the lovely sound the choir made.

On Tuesday the 13th March, Barrow Hills School was invited to St Brides Church with pupils from King Edward’s Witley. Everybody was really friendly and the Bishop was funny which kept us all engaged. The choir were incredible and had a wide variety of tones. After the service, we went to Guildhall. This was spectacular as it was so large and the food was great. After that, we got back on the bus. Overall, I think everybody had a great day.
