The search for choristers to sing for King Richard III's re-internment

Leicester Cathedral's choir has a long and proud tradition, quietly impressing congregations in the city down the years. But next year choristers will find themselves at the centre of worldwide attention.

The choir will play a key role in the historic re-interment of King Richard III with the world's media watching them. Next week, as they begin their preparations, they'll hold auditions for new choristers to be a part of the unique event.
