Ten King’s Ely pupils are hoping to strike a tune after being officially installed as Ely Cathedral choristers.

Megan La Manna, Stella Bluck, Miriam Reveley, Grace Owen, Amelia Merrick and Katherine Mann, Robert Reed, Max Hatton, Alfie Bottley and Nelson Cuthbert-Jacques were installed during Sunday Evensong last weekend and celebrated with a piece of cake.

Director of Ely Cathedral girls’ choir, Sarah Macdonald, said: “We are delighted to welcome the girls and boys into the cathedral foundation.

“They have all spent the past several months learning the many new skills required of a chorister, working hard to master such things as the technical vagaries of psalm-singing, coming to terms with new and busy daily routines, building their musicianship and teamwork skills, and finding their feet in everything from polyphony to processions.

“The service was lovely and the cake was absolutely incredible!”
