A Choral Tour of Wessex

This is an actual tour that we provided for a church choir from Virginia during June 2001. The majority of the group had been to England before which reduced the need to visit the "must see" sights. Instead, the emphasis was on getting to know and feeling at home in one of England's smaller and more personable cities. As well as its famous cathedral, Winchester has a rich medieval history and one of England's foremost public (private) schools.
