A poignant moment from Ely Cathedral as the senior members of the girls’ choir choose to sing Mendelssohn’s wonderful setting of words from Psalm 121.

“We hope they provide some solace in these distressing times,” said their spokeswoman on social media.

“This is the last time that they will sing together for the foreseeable future.”

Meanwhile the cathedral has reminded residents that whilst they may not be able to welcome you to services inside at the moment “but we are still here for you”.

The cathedral will be live streaming their sung eucharist on Sunday.

They have also set up a ‘worship at home’ page on their website which has useful information including prayers resources, daily reflections, a support email, information about Ely Cathedral Community Support Group and more.
