Under his direction King's College Choir Cambridge continues the daily singing of chapel services during term time - the raison d'être of the choir - and maintains a busy schedule of concerts, tours, recordings and broadcasts.

Today at Worcester Cathedral it was the funeral of Simon Andrews, the 29 year old motorcyclist who died in a crash on his BMW in a Superstock race at the Vauxhall International North West 200 on 17th May. He competed in the British Superbike Championship for RAF Reserves aboard a Honda CBR1000RR, hence the presence of uniformed RAF personnel at the funeral.
A very emotional day today at Simon Andrews' funeral. We had lots of laughs and lots of tears but through it all it was so apparent how many lives he touched and inspired. Worcester cathedral was full, I will always remember him for his phone calls to me saying "I've had a crash, I've broken x,y,z but I need to be back on the bike racing in 2 weeks". True determination and dedication to the sport he loved. Simon you will be so greatly missed but your legacy lives on xx
On our way home from Worcester Cathedral, beautiful service & bursting at the seams x

Tudor Fact : Arthur Tudor, Prince of Wales is buried in Worcester Cathedral.
This is the main website of Worcester Cathedral
Tickenhill Manor belonged to the Mortimer Family until the 13th century, when it became crown property. It was in a very poor state, and King Henry V11 had it repaired, and enlarged, as a palace for his eldest son Arthur, Prince of Wales. As Arthur was first in line for the throne, he was sent to train, in the art of Kingship, at Ludlow Castle, when he was just 6 years old. A marriage had been arranged for him when he was 2, and he was married by proxy to Catherine of Aragon. This ceremony took place at Tickenhill in 1499, when the prince was 13. Catherine was also considered too young to be married at this time, and she didn’t come to England until 1501. The couple were married, in the old St Pauls Cathedral, in November 1501. They moved to Ludlow Castle, but were both taken ill. Arthur was never a robust lad, and he died at the age of 15 years. The funeral was arranged for Worcester Cathedral, and a break in the journey was taken at Tickenhill, where the body lay in the same Chapel that the proxy we . ...
Hope Richard III comes back to York, his son is buried in the side chapel of Sherrif Hutton Parish church. It is a simple tomb with just his Arms on the side compared with magnificent ornate Henry VII chantry had in Worcester Cathedral for his son Arthur.

Before we end National Poetry for 2012 may I say how much I enjoyed being at Worcester Cathedral today where I had been invited to participate in a day of workshops with two local schools. Introducing the cinquain, knew that would impress you, Definitely budding poets and, when asked, nobody said they thought poetry was boring! Sadly, the local press couldn't make the event. Worcester is such a lovely place to promote, children are to be encouraged in the arts, and it was National Poetry Day. What a shame. Rounded off my personal poetry fest in home town of Birmingham where I joined in the celebrations of the 18th Poet Laureate. All in all, together with Jo Bell's great news, a rather splendid day.
