Message of support

Hereford Cathedral Junior School

The final junior choir - Hereford! Who are singing ‘Just One Small Voice’

Definitely a more uptempo number.

Judges comments'

Connie loved the piece, but said they needed more ‘oomph’.

Ken said the harmonies had great effect but said they need to ensure the choir ends the words together.

Lindley have had the best feedback so far!

I can see why Songs of Praise is popular...

...soothing choral music when you’re full on the sofa from Sunday lunch...

Now for Blackheath Preparatory School

Who also sound brilliant - what talented youngsters!

Judges' comments

Hit those high notes!

Interesting way to hear the Lord’s Prayer...

Lindley are doing a wonderful job... glorious in green!

Lindley are first!

And we’re off.

Don’t they sounds great!

The judges

Katherine Jenkins, Ken Burton and Connie Fisher - who all look rather snazzy

There they are!

Lindley are on stage, trying not to look too nervous I imagine.. good luck guys! Nice to see the good luck signs waving in the audience!


Look, Aled's already on the telly!

He’s been presenting The Day I Met The Queen, you might have just caught the last five minutes if you’re watching BBC One already...

But now, the final!

Here's what they're singing

Lindley Junior School Choir will perform The Lord’s Prayer from the choral Mass African Sanctus by British composer David Fanshaw.
