There’s a second opportunity to see the wonderful and highly acclaimed* 'Angelic Voices: The Choristers of Salisbury Cathedral' on BBC FOUR  on Good Friday, 6 April, at 7.30pm.

Filmed in 2011 by Emmy award-winning Cesca Eaton, ‘Angelic Voices’ spends four months with the choristers as they go about their day-to-day lives, discovering their own history and singing some of the most loved music spanning six centuries from medieval plainsong to today.

Under the direction of indefatigable choir master David Halls they rehearse and perform works by Sheppard, Byrd, Purcell, Handel, Mozart, Stanford, Parry, Alcock and Rutter.  A musical and documentary treat!
