A BECCLES schoolboy has been chosen to sing the treble solo in Benjamin Britten's Te Deum in C, when it is performed in Snape Maltings on Sunday.

Jamie Minns will join the Britten-Pears Chamber Choir and the Britten Sinfonia.

Jamie was selected by the choir's conductor Ralph Woodward, from a group of children from four Suffolk Schools, who are also singing in the concert.

It is believed that this will be the first performance of the Te Deum in Snape Maltings, as there is no record of it having been sung there before.
