It wasn't good. I was half way through my O levels when we moved to Horsham. It was difficult to adjust to the changes in my opinion.

But think how wonderful it must have been musically, a proper SATB, drama, men for male parts (sorry JR) so brilliant in so many ways. Those awful old Housemistresses - gone! A proper CH uniform!

Angela - I went to the St Matthew's Day service in London just a week into the first term of the merger. I remember commenting at the time that It was impossible to tell from the quality of the music that the choir and musicians had only been working together for such a short time.

How brilliant, Frances. That must have been lovely!
