The Truro Cathedral choir will return to the islands again. And Scilly’s Anglican Chaplain has promised that Bryher or St Martin’s will host a concert next time.

Canon Paul Miller says the support for the visit of the 19 youth and 11 adult choristers was very good.

200 people attended the St Mary’s Parish Church performance on Wednesday and 90 people went to St Agnes Church concert on Thursday morning.

Later that evening 120 people listened to the choral evensong on St Mary’s.

The choir also hosted an hour-long workshop in choral singing, in which 20 locals took part.

Paul says some choir members have made it clear that they want to return. The tour was part-funded by grants from the Scilly Lottery, the Council and the Duchy. The Boatmen’s Association also helped with sponsorship.
