Sidney honours foundress

The choir of Sidney Sussex has sung Evensong at Westminster Abbey. Following the service, the Master laid a wreath at the momument to Lady Frances Sidney, Countess of Sussex, Foundress of the College, which is located in St Paul's Chapel in the Abbey. The choir then sang Eric Whitacre's new setting of the College grace.

We were delighted to be joined by so many old members, as well as the families of the choir and friends of the College.

Sidney Sussex would like to the thank James O'Donnell and Robert Quinney for inviting the choir to sing and Canon Hedges and the Dean and Chapter of Westminster Abbey for helping to organise such a memorable occasion.
