The Chapel

Technical Note
The chapel at Turvey Abbey isn’t set up for livestreaming, so we shall be using one fixed webcam with integrated sound. The chapel does have a sound system, but the chapel amplifier is too far from the webcam to connect directly. The sound quality is much better through the sound system than through the webcam audio, so we have recorded the audio through the chapel system and uploaded it to this page as well as livestreaming.
