Day 2 was so much fun! We woke up early to the smell of pastries and chocolate croissants. While enjoying the great breakfast, James M. caused a bit of a commotion by burning his toast (good thing we had a fire drill yesterday!) After breakfast, we walked to the main campus of Winchester College for a tour. It was awesome! Our tour guide, Chris, told us lots of stories about the College, including that they shot some of Les Miserables in one of the chapels! She let us take photos outside (and sneak some photos inside, too). We then made our way over to the Undercroft for Evensong rehearsal, and then had some lunch and free time. During free time, our group went to the candy store for dessert. We made our way back to rehearsal for another hour of Evensong prep. At Evensong tonight, we sang the Noble Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis in in B minor, Oh How Glorious by Harwood, the Tompkins responses, and two more Psalms. The service was another success! After burgers for dinner, we went to the field for a game of kickball. Sander kicked a double, George stole a base, and Will got a home run! Today was another great day. We can’t wait for the day trip tomorrow!
