our supporters is critical.

A broadcast of Choral Evensong from St Paul's Cathedral has been listened to right across the world, with people
tuning in from the UK, Europe, Africa, North and South America and Australia.
The service, broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 on Wednesday 2 April, was a rare opportunity for the Choir of St Paul's Cathedral to be heard outside
the walls of the Cathedral.
During the service and via the catch-up service, those tuning in via the BBC website let the Cathedral know where in the world they were enjoying
the service. People posted messages from the Netherlands, Germany, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Uganda and more than two-dozen locations right across
the United States.
