The service was designed to commemorate St Felix and his work as missionary, teacher and first Bishop of East Anglia in the 7th century. The choir sang a varied music list, which included plainchant from the 9th to 10th centuries, a setting of the Canticles by Thomas Morley, a 16th century composer from Norwich, and a simple four-part anthem by the 20th-century English composer, Ralph Vaughan Williams. A member of the Sole Bay Ministry Team, the Revd Malcolm Doney, gave a short address on the theme of determination and a thirst for leaning and the service was led by the school’s Lay Chaplain, Mrs H Meldrum. The Schola Cantorum has plans to sing Evensong in local churches and further afield, as they gain experience and develop their skills in liturgical performance.
