Lichfield Cathedral Choir Lent Quiz 2016

Bookmark and Share

Choral Festival at Lichfield Cathedral, 1865After a trek around forty English cathedrals, the 2016 #LentQuiz is over. There have been approximately 1,800 entries in total, with an average of nearly 45 entries per day. Several days were clearly too easy as all the entries were correct, and while many people clearly only entered if they believed they were right (the entries reveal few guesses), the two most difficult days were Day 3 and Day 12.
