Social media users are delighted with the boy with fiery red hair who was filmed singing heartily at Westminster Abbey during the Queen’s funeral. During the service to celebrate the life of Queen Elizabeth II, the abbey choir sang church hymns and psalms, as well as the national anthem.
Many people praised the choir’s performance throughout the service, but social media users were particularly impressed by one of the artists.
The little chorister looked like he was singing his whole heart out during Psalm 42. He was extremely excited during the service. As choral music filled the abbey, the boy moved expressively.
One social media user said, “The little red-haired chorister has stolen my heart with his zeal.” Social platforms are full of similar praise for the boy who put all his talent and commitment into the performance.
Westminster Abbey Choir
The Westminster Abbey choir is world famous and consists of thirty boys and twelve professional adult singers known as lay vicars.
The Westminster Abbey choir sang various hymns during the historic ceremony, including “The Lord Is My Shepherd” which was sung at the Queen’s wedding to the Duke of Edinburgh in 1947.
The same hymn was also included in the songs sung at the funeral of the queen’s father, George VI, in 1952, but in a slightly different tone.
Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral took place on September 19, 2022 at Westminster Abbey. After the funeral ceremonies, the queen’s body will be placed in the chapel of St. George in Windsor alongside her late husband, Prince Philip.
