Our Route around Europe

Our Route around Europe

Monday, February 13


We have arrived in snowy Denmark!  After an early start we set off with an hour to spare and managed to make an earlier ferry towards Copenhagen. The boys were very excited and even managed a game of 'tag' on deck. Some of the boys were more graceful than others however....

With a very smooth ferry crossing the boys were in high spirits on arrival at the visually stunning Hellig Kors Kirke. We can't honestly say that we saw much of Denmark due to a covering of snow and fog! After an afternoon rehearsal, including some very helpful tuition from our Danish counterparts, the boys happily tucked into enormous pizzas in the church kitchen and performed very well in front of a large and very appreciative audience.

This unusual and beautiful Church was surrounded by a gorgeous sunset that may have been lost on the choir as they posed for photos before the performance. As we drove back to our five star hostel, the largest in Europe indeed, the boys were grateful for having had time to make their beds earlier in the day! We are all looking forward to the prospect of a day off to explore Copenhagen tomorrow.

Quote of the day: After reading the quiz question 'what is the name of a large green ogre?' A chorister exclaimed ''But Miss, I have no idea what an orgy is!''
P.S. Here are a couple of taster photos from the first few days, as promised....
