Let the children sing!
My sons went to this school (not as choristers) and I like the school. This is a nice programme about a nice cathedral school, where the kids are taught, from the top down, to sing very impressive sacred music. But if you want to hear what a boys' choir can really do, google "Drakensberg Boys' Choir" and find them on YouTube. They are probably the best boys' choir in the world and their singing will blow your mind. It's probably not a fair comparison because, although they sing a good deal of sacred music, they are not tied to singing merely Christian music and the whole approach is different. At DBC the approach is collaborative, with as much input from the boys as from the choir masters. And it shows! Their African tribal music is out of this world. They stream a concert on the internet on Wednesday afternoons in term time. Listen and you will see what I mean!
