Choristers of St Paul's Cathedral, Wellington

From Summer Times 2020/2021, 10:30 am on 28 December 2018

For most people, things tend to ease up in the lead up to Christmas.

But for the country's cathedral choristers - many of whom aren't old enough to drive - a weeks-long crescendo culminates in the Midnight Mass service - one of the biggest, and most important of the year.

We went to catch up with the choristers of St Paul's Cathedral to check in on how preparations are going, and to try to figure out why a 13 year-old kid would sign up for this.
