Canterbury Cathedral's first all-girl choir has come together to sing.

Canterbury has been an important place of worship for the Church of England for more than a thousand years.

Records show its choirs have been male-only for almost a 1000 years but now the girls are making their debut.

40 auditions were held to find 16 choristers aged 12 to 16 and the competition was tough.

Nel went to see the girls in rehearsal.
