Trinity Laban Students Sing at Lambeth Palace

Thu 8 February 2018

On Tuesday 6 February, the Old Royal Naval College Trinity Laban Chapel Choir sang for a special occasion evensong at Lambeth Palace.

The private service was presided over by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. In attendance were more than thirty bishops from around the world, many from war-torn regions, who were visiting the UK to take part in the Canterbury Bishops Course.

The event was also attended by a small number of Trinity Laban Patrons, who provide vital scholarship support for TL students.

Ralph Allwood MBE, director of the choir, commented:

“It was a great privilege yesterday to take our wonderful Old Royal Naval College Trinity Laban Chapel Choir to sing Evensong in Lambeth Palace. The chapel has a lovely warm acoustic, and there seemed to be similarly warm appreciation for our singing of Farrant, Palestrina, Victoria and Parsons.”

The Chapel Choir is one of Trinity Laban’s flagship ensembles, performing weekly services and celebratory concerts at the magnificent Old Royal Naval College. In April, the choir is embarking on its first ever tour of India, participating in outreach sessions and performing at the National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA) in Mumbai.
