If it weren't for

Clare, I wouldn't

be the singer

I am today

Elin Manahan Thomas, soprano (1995-98)


Eucharist at St Paul's Cathedral

Date: Monday 19 March 2012 5.00pm


The Mass was Palestrina's epic Missa Papae Marcelli, a work that is often said to have saved polyphony with its declamatory setting. Singing in the stalls under the Dome of the Cathedral was a thrilling experience, and one very different to that with which we are accustomed in Clare Chapel. The anthem was Victoria's motet, O quam gloriosum.
