From St Petersburg to St Peter's Cathedral

A large crowd turned up to see members of the choral group Lyra performing in the Cathedral last night. The group, from St Petersburg, have 25 members in total. Together they must sound magnificent, since the four of them who came for the concert made a wonderful sound. They performed a wide variety of sacred and secular music, mostly unaccompanied. The Cathedral's acoustics are perfect for this type of music, and performers often comment that it is a pleasure to sing here.
