Teenage choristers pass singing exam

TWO teenage members of a Peppard church choir have passed singing examinations.

Christopher Humm and Nia Hudson, both 14, achieved the silver award in singing from the Royal School of Church Music.

They had to complete a 40-minute exam in which they sang a hymn, psalm and anthem as well as a set piece. They also answered questions on church liturgy and music theory and talked about what inspired them to sing in a church choir.

Christopher, of Rowan Close, Sonning Common, is a pupil at Reading School and Nia, from Bradfield Southend, attends Queen Anne’s School in Caversham.

They belong to the 16-strong choir at All Saints’ Church in Church Lane.
