Last Wednesday, Royal Holloway invited Central Foundation’s Music School choir to their college campus in Surrey for a day’s rehearsal.

The Music School was allowed to observe a rehearsal of a newly composed piece, They Shall Awake by Anthony Pitts ahead of their summer tour of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. Mr Pitts, who was also in attendance, discussed the composition with the boys.

The university’s chapel choir and our Music School choir then rehearsed Henry Purcell’s Hear My Prayer, O Lord together. The chapel choir were impressed at the vocal range, skill and discipline of the Music School, while the Music School learnt advanced techniques from the university group.  Purcell’s piece is part of the Royal Holloway’s repertoire and will also be a focal part of Central Foundation’s Formal Concert in July.
