Visiting choirs

We warmly welcome visiting choirs to sing at Cathedral services when the Cathedral Choir is not in residence. Some visiting choirs are local, whilst 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.

Visiting choirs commonly sing at the following times;

  • most Saturdays throughout the year
  • during half-term holidays
  • after the major feasts of Christmas and Easter
  • during July and August

Applying

To enquire about bringing a choir to sing at the Cathedral please contact our Liturgy and Music Administrator.

Prospective visiting choirs are asked to write with details of their membership and recent singing experience. Visiting choirs normally need to bring their own organist of a professional standard, who is at ease with playing a large Cathedral instrument.
