On Sunday 17 September four probationer choristers were admitted to the Cathedral Choir as full choristers at the beginning of Evensong.  At the same service, Mr Daniel Cook was admitted as Master of the Choristers and Organist, succeeding Canon Dr James Lancelot who retired in July 2017 after 32 years in post.
