    Male voice choir perform "Heav'n".

    Full title reads: "Now Pictorial presents The Wisbech Male Voice Choir" (Conductor Frederick Ingram)."

    The all male choir stands in a group with their conductor in the foreground. High angle shot of the choir who wear evening dress. They sing "Heav'n" - a traditional song. A montage of skyscape shots illustrate the song - various trees are silhouetted against fluffy clouds. I suppose it is quite difficult to illustrate the concept of Heaven.

    Note: the studio shots of the choir are filmed using a dolly - the camera moves away from the choir as it films them. This is quite unusual for Pathe studio material at this time, the camera is usually stationary.

    Safety print exists.
