St Cecilia Festival Service

St Paul's Cathedral Choir welcomed the choirs of Westminster Abbey and Westminster Cathedral to St Paul's Cathedral on Wednesday 18th November, to all sing together under the leadership of Andrew Carwood. The service was to celebrate the wonderful work of Help Musicians UK and was indeed a memorable occasion in front of a packed cathedral. A new commission by the composer, Matthew Martin, 'Behold, now praise the Lord', was performed to great effect. In fact, the organist had so many notes to play in the final bars that he was instructed in the score to 'use forearms'.
