This was the Choir's second live video broadcast of Evensong, allowing an international audience to experience the sights and sounds of an Evensong from St John's College Chapel, Cambridge.

Music included 'Jesu, grant me this I pray' by former Director of Music, Christopher Robinson and 'Adam lay ibounden' by Giles Swayne, for which the Choir was joined by current student and BBC Young Musician of the Year winner Laura van der Heijden.

Over 30,000 people have watched the broadcast so far. We are grateful to our colleagues at Classic FM, Premier PR and About Sound Ltd for making this event happen.
