Jane Murray, of the schools, said: “After six hours the children came up with their song ‘Sing It Loud and Sing It Proud’ and had written the lyrics and melody.

“When the children arrived at Ely Cathedral, they were full of excitement at the prospect of recording their song, and the nerves kicked in as they stood in front of the cameras and microphones.

“Supported by the music coordinator team from Anthony Curton and Tilney All Saints, the children performed with confidence and precision.

One of the music coordinators said: “We are incredibly proud of the children and the song they have written and performed.”

The song will be published in a hymn book for schools and will be available to watch on YouTube in around a month’s time.
