Eight adult singers from the York Minster Choir, under the direction of Robert Sharpe, Director of Music at York Minster rehearse and then perform a newly commissioned anthem written to celebrate the return of choral singing in York Minster for the first time since the coronavirus lockdown.

The members of the choir have been unable to sing at the Minster for six-months which is the first break in singing there for 360 years.

The anthem, written by Cornish composer Becky McGlade is called ‘O sing unto the lord a new song’ and is the first of three specially commissioned anthems to be performed at Evensong service over three consecutive evenings.
