Choir and scientists team up

by Michael Ford last modified 03 Jul, 2020 09:29 PM

Our Cathedral Choir has made it onto News at Ten.

They featured in a story which told how the choir have teamed up with the Government's secret science labs to find a way to start singing safely again.

Scientists attended a rehearsal at Salisbury Cathedral to test the reach of spray and spittle from the choir.

The choir's professional singers will perform a series of tests in the government science facility at nearby Porton Down to establish how close the choir can stand to each other as they sing.

Services at our Cathedral had moved online during the pandemic but as lockdown measures ease, the famous choir hopes to start singing under that famous spire again.

And once the labs determine the minimum social distance, Salisbury can exult in hearing music to sooth the soul again, in a city which has been through so much in recent years.
