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.

This week's webcast is the Eucharist held in memory of the fallen of both World Wars and all subsequent conflicts. The Choir sings Duruflé's masterful and moving setting of the Requiem featuring the treatment and weaving-in of traditional plainsong themes amongst his characteristic harmony.

Choral singing comes no better
