A Choral Tour of Yorkshire

After Canterbury, York is the most important see in the Church of England as well as being the chief city in the North of England from Roman times until the Industrial Revolution. This tour is based in the cathedral city of Ripon where curfew is still called in the Market Square every evening at 9.00pm (nobody takes any notice).
