It’s that time of year again when choristers in Cambridgeshire have been busy rehearsing for their annual carol services – and not always where one would expect.

The 16 boys of King’s College Choir have spent weeks practising at King’s College Chapel for the hugely popular Carols from King’s, televised by the BBC since 1954.

It will be shown this year on BBC2 on Christmas Eve.

Meanwhile, Ely Cathedral Girls’ Choir were up on the roof of their cathedral at sunrise on the morning of Friday, December 15 for a roof-top rehearsal.

Founded in 2006, the choir consists of 16 girls; members of King’s Ely and aged between 13 and 18. They sang at two services on Sunday, December 17.
