Lichfield Cathedral Choir Lent Quiz 2017

Choral Festival at Lichfield Cathedral, 1865After the success of last year's #LentQuiz, Lent 2017 sees Quires II: The Return of the Quires to challenge those for whom last year's quiz was too easy! This year's #LentQuiz involves cathedrals, abbeys, major parish churches, colleges, and minsters throughout the British Isles. All those featured have choirs and, just like last year, the focus is on the area of the church in which its choir sings. This area is usually called the Choir or the Quire and although they are generally configured in a similar manner, their appearance and decoration differ and there are some wonderful examples of architecture.

For each of the forty days of Lent 2017 (which runs from Wednesday 1 March to Saturday 15 April and excludes Sundays) a picture of the Quire (or an area thereof) of a place of worship from somewhere in the British Isles will be published here at midnight and accessed via the relevant link below, or via tweets and posts on our Facebook page sent out as reminders during the course of the day.

To enter, people simply have to identify which place of worship is featured in the picture. Entries will be accepted during the 24 hours after the publication of each day's image at midnight. The previous days' images will remain accessible through the links below, but entries will not be accepted more than 24 hours after the image is published. Within each 24 hour period, people can enter as many times as they like, but only their final answer will be accepted.

There will be daily winners selected at random from the correct answers, and an overall winner with the highest number of correct answers; if there is a tie, the overall winner will be selected at random. Both daily winners and the overall winner will be named on Easter Day and they, along with the answers, will be found at here.
