Visiting Choirs

Norwich Cathedral welcomes visiting choirs to sing the Cathedral services when the Cathedral Choir is off-duty. Some visiting choirs are local and others come from all over the world. Parish choirs, school and college choirs and professional ensembles all help us to uphold the highest musical standards in our worship.

When do visiting choirs sing services?

During the week we welcome visiting choirs to sing Evensong most Saturdays of the year, as well as Evensong and Sung Eucharist at the following times:

  • during half-term,
  • after the major feasts of Christmas and Easter, and
  • during July and August.


How to apply

A professional standard of organ-playing is essential and good forward planning of repertoire is desirable.

In the first instance a non-commercial CD recording of your choir would help us to assist you.

Kristina Bartlette oversees the administration of visiting choirs. Do contact her for further details and available dates. Phone: 01603 218306 E-mail:
