Cathedrals Alumnus Roger Horne returns to the road
Cathedrals alumnus Roger Horne has come out of retirement to join Mercy Road as their new tenor. Mercy Road is a part-time quartet based in Nashville, Tennessee.
Horne was a member of the Gospel Harmony Boys from 1969-1971. He joined the Cathedrals in 1971, after Mack Taunton’s departure. He recorded two albums with the group, Right On (1971) and Welcome To Our World (1972).
After Horne left the Cathedrals, baritone Roy Tremble moved to tenor to take his place. Horne would go on to perform with the Scenicland Boys, Jerry and the Singing Goffs, and his own group, the Roger Horne Trio. He eventually went into the insurance business, retiring earlier this year.
