If this is Tuesday, it must be England #31

Home of the Choir of St. George's Chapel
The Choir of St George's Chapel comprises 23 boy choristers and twelve Lay Clerks singing alto, tenor and bass. The boys are educated at St George's School which is situated in the Castle grounds, and the Lay Clerks live in the Horseshoe Cloister, just to the west of the Chapel, and on Denton's Commons.

  1. Windsor is one of my favorite spots. We lived only about 20 minutes away, and I was there on a regular basis. Definitely need a trip back!
