Synopsis:

Child choristers have been singing at Salisbury for 900 years. This film follows Salisbury Cathedral’s current choristers over Easter and through the summer term. The Cathedral’s separate boy and girl choirs each contain 16 of the most musically gifted 8-13 year olds in the country. Their role, now as always, is to sing, day-in day-out some of the most sublime music ever written in one of Britain’s most beautiful buildings.

Made for the BBC and narrated by Michelle Dockery (Downtown Abbey’s Lady Mary Crawley) this fascinating observational portrait will immerse you in the history and music of one of Britain’s most distinctive and cultural traditions.
