Ely's young singing stars, The Choirboys, have just received a platinum disc for their album as sales top £300,000.

The album was released on the Universal label two years ago and featured King's School pupils and former choristers, Patrick Aspbury and CJ Porter-Thaw, along with Ben Inman, a chorister at Southwell Minster.

Although the boys days as choristers are over, both Patrick and CJ are still taking an active part in the musical life of the school.

Patrick, now 14, is a music scholar in Year 10 in senior school and a member of the King's Barbers, the close harmony group of former choristers.
