Exeter Cathedral Grandisson service 1948

Grandisson Service, Christmas Eve 1948.

Alan or David Vening (brothers)
Rev. Reggie LLewellyn (Precentor)
Rev. Peter Green (Succentor)
John Lomax
David Hudson
Victor Baddeley

Curiously there is an absence of any congregation in the quire. Was this is a posed photograph and not part of the actual service?

With thanks to John Lomax (treble 1944-1949), who provided the photograph and the names. John's recollections as a chorister can be read in the ECOCA newsletter for October 2012 and February 2014.
