Cantabile was one of six school choirs singing for a place in the final of the 2014 BBC One Songs of Praise competition.
They delighted the judges with ‘Ex Ore Innocentium’, written by Bishop W.W.How and composed by John Ireland and secured their place in the final three along with Rochester and Highgate.
Comments from the judges about Cantabile’s performance included ‘The epitome of beauty ..’ Laura Mvula, ‘its my sort of thing …’ Gareth Malone, and ‘as an expression of faith … you also managed to bring a dimension to it that was very special’ Suzi Digby.
