The choir of St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast, joined the parish choir of St Patrick’s, Broughshane, to sing Choral Evensong on Sunday June 2.
People from the village of Broughshane and further afield came together for the first Choral Evensong sung in Broughshane for more than 30 years.
The rector, the Rev Dr Andrew Campbell, said: “It was wonderful to welcome David Stevens, Master of the Choristers, and the choir of Belfast Cathedral to Broughshane, as they showcased excellence in choral music.
“We are grateful for their willingness to come and to nurture and inspire the choral tradition here. I also want to pay tribute to our own choir in St Patrick’s, Broughshane, and our organist Elizabeth Ferguson as they joined with the choir of St Anne’s in this wonderful evening.”
Refreshments were served after the service in the church hall. The initial feedback was extremely positive with comments like:
“A great evening. Really good singing.”
“It was truly beautiful.”
“When is the next one?”
