Choirs at the Minster
The Cathedral Choir
The Cathedral Choir comprises the Boy Choristers, Girl Choristers, and Lay Clerks who, between them, provide music for eight choral services each week during school terms. The boys and girls usually sing as separate groups, combining for particularly important occasions such as Christmas and Easter services, and notable events in the life of the Minster. Regular concerts and international tours are a feature of the choir’s work.
The Minster Chorale
The Minster Chorale is the Minster's chamber choir, comprising up to thirty volunteer singers who meet once a week and perform a number of services each term. Such services include the evening Eucharists on major feast days, including the annual All Souls Requiem and the Christmas Midnight Eucharist. In addition the Minster Chorale travels further afield, most recently performing at Peterborough Cathedral and Tewkesbury Abbey. The Chorale celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2015 with a tour to the Channel Islands. The choir was recently featured on BBC Radio 3's 'Meet my Choir'.
