The final Diamond Choir is made up of children from church, school and community choirs and will come together for this special occasion that June weekend. They will be joined by the Choristers of St Paul's Cathedral Choir and the boys of the Chapel Royal for their once-in-a-lifetime performance.
The choir will sing an anthem commissioned for the occasion, The Call of Wisdom, written by British composer Will Todd.
The Reverend Canon Michael Hampel, Precentor of St Paul's, said: "The Diamond Choir has captivated children from across the UK since we launched the project back in March; it is very exciting to be able to put names and faces to the choir who will sing here on June 5."
"With the children coming together two days before the Diamond Jubilee service, they will have to work very hard in that time to be ready to sing for the Queen, hundreds of dignitaries and an audience of millions across the country and overseas. However, the audition standard was incredibly high so we are certain the Diamond Choir performance will be a huge success."
"Once again we would like to thank all the children who applied to be in the Diamond Choir, and for those who didn’t make the final choir we hope they will enjoy watching the service on television and continue their passion for singing."
