After more than a thousand years, a revolution has taken place in the choir of Canterbury Cathedral: the male choir was joined for the first time in its history by the Canterbury Cathedral Girls' Choir. It consists of sixteen girls aged between 12 and 16 years old, who were chosen during auditions that started in November of last year, which saw a large turnout in terms of enthusiasm and, above all, vocal skills. Many, including the choir director David Newsholme, have hailed the opening as enrichment for the singing tradition of the cathedral. Even if for now it is only expected that the girls will only sing during services as replacements, when the boys that are engaged elsewhere.
