THE voices of pupils at a Romsey school will be heard over the airwaves this Easter.
The Hampshire Collegiate School Choir travelled to the BBC studios in Southampton to record an Easter hymn, which will be broadcast on BBC Radio Solent on Good Friday.
Forty-nine children directed by teacher Kay Francis, performed a rendition of When I survey the wondrous cross, set to a beautiful modern tune, with a soloist and harmonies.
Year 5 pupil Monique Duarte-Forbes sang the solo and there was a flute solo by Abigail Morgan (pictured) , of Year 6.
The choir were asked to sing after their caught the attention of Radio Solent presenter Katie Martin at the Honeypot Charity Concert in Romsey Abbey last December.
Mrs Francis said: “It was an amazing opportunity for the pupils.
“I was so proud of them all and they were an absolute credit to the school.”
The children’s performance will be aired between 2pm and 3pm.
