Hereford Cathedral School welcomes county children for Combined Carol Service

Combined Carols at HCS

Hundreds of school children from across Herefordshire and beyond took part in Hereford Cathedral School’s Combined Carols service at Hereford Cathedral last week. 

The children were given the opportunity to sing in this high-profile event in the beautiful surroundings of the cathedral as part of Hereford Cathedral School’s music outreach programme.

HCS welcomed pupils from Aylestone School, Bishop Hooper Primary, Bishop's Castle Primary, Clehonger Primary, Cradley Primary, Cross Ash Primary, Garway Primary, Gorsley Goffs Primary, Kings Caple School, Kingsland Primary, Pembridge Primary, St Paul's Church of England Primary and Wellington Primary.

The children sang a collection of traditional hymns and carols including Gloria!, Light for Everyone, Walking in the Air and Here I am Lord. There were also readings from pupils from the guest schools.

Hundreds gathered in the cathedral for the occasion, and there was a hugely positive response. St Paul’s Primary tweeted: “Many thanks to @HerefordCS for inviting us to take part in the wonderful Combined Carol Service.” Cradley Primary School commented on Facebook: “It was a very special service and such a wonderful opportunity to sing with such beautiful choirs. Thank you for including us.”
