Choristers Return after Coronavirus

Exeter chorosters rehearse, Sept 2020

The full choir returned to Exeter Cathedral for the first time since England’s coronavirus lockdown began in March, for their first public appearance at the Cathedral in evensong on Monday 28 September 2020. The photo (from the Cathedral's newsletter for 25 Sept) shows the boys rehearsing in preparation for this.

Previously, weekend services in September had been sung by a group of adults comprising two sopranos and the adults of either decani or cantoris. A solo adult had acted as cantor for the Sunday services in late July and all of August.

The girl choristers and all the adults first sang on Monday 28 September. The boy choristers and all the adults first sang on Tuesday 29 September.
