On 18 June 2005, the three extreme cellists, together with three singing friends (Chris and Rachel Tyler, and Laurie Cottam) undertook a sponsored walk of massive proportions for a single day: we walked the 45 miles from Manchester Cathedral to Sheffield Cathedral to raise money for Sheffield Cathedral Choir! We were joined along various parts of the route by friends, and were supported by two vehicles driven by Peter Heginbotham, then Assistant Master of the Music at Sheffield Cathedral, and Angela Rees, mother of James.

Along the way, we performed Byrd's Mass for Three voices at various locations (one movement at each stop). In some places, the movements were sung by the entire walking party; in others, they were played by the three cellists. Details are given below!
