(Press Association) Anglican choir to sing for the Pope

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Westminster Abbey choir is to make history this week by singing at the Vatican just under two years after performing for Pope Benedict XVI on his visit to Britain.

The 20 boys and 12 adult singers will become the first to join forces with the Pope's personal choir, the Sistine Chapel Choir.

The two choirs will sing at First Vespers in the Papal basilica of San Paulo Fuori Le Mura - St Paul Outside The Walls - on Thursday and at the Papal Mass in the Vatican Basilica of St Peter's the following morning, on the feast day of St Peter and St Paul.
