Choir heads to Rome for Vatican performance

Members of the Hereford Cathedral choir are flying to Rome today ahead of their performance at the Vatican.

They've been invited to take part in a performance at the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul on 27 June, on the steps of St Peter's Basilica, in front of thousands of spectators and millions more on the TV.
