4.8 MB | 11.1 MB East Midlands Today 2 (22/09/05)

One of a series looking at schools with a bit of a difference, this report is about the Minster School in Southwell.

The Minster School, I think, is unique in this country, in that, although the Minster's choir school, it is in the state sector and is basically a high school with a junior department for the younger choristers and other muscially gifted children.

By the way, have you ever had a penguin round for tea?

4.7 MB China News 1 (??/2005)

4.5 MB Songs of Praise (Ely) (14/11/04)
Patrick’s and CH’s first (presumably) appearance on Songs Of Praise, as Ely choristers in pre-Choirboys days. Patrick is easy to spot (look out at about 1 minute in). We don't get such a close view of CJ, but he is there. When we see both groups of choristers together towards the end, CJ is in the right hand group, back row, third from the left.
