My daughter played soprano sax with the St John's College Choir in the Advent service a couple of weeks back. It was on Radio 3 and for the next few weeks, you can hear it on the St John's website. It is the arrangement of the carol 'Es ist ein Ros' entsprungen' and is the first item on the programme. My daughter has just finished her first term studying Music at Cambridge. Enjoy!

Wonderful recording, excellent performance and an almost ethereal sound in that church. Job well done!

Very nice. The MD of one of my choir's will be pleased - he's an ex lay clerk at St. John's....

Purely out of curiosity and to stem any attempt at robust humour, what does a lay cleric do?

A lay clerk gets paid a small fee for singing in a cathedral or collegiate choir (in effect is a 'professional' singer). Term arose to distinguish from clerical (i.e. ordained ministers) singers... I'm sure you're just teasing....
