Norwich Cathedral Chamber Choir


Norwich Cathedral Chamber Choir is one of the region’s leading vocal ensembles, made up of around fifty experienced amateur singers.

Formerly known as Norwich Cathedral Consort, the Chamber Choir performs around three concerts each year in the Cathedral and has a broad repertoire, both sacred and secular, that stretches from the sixteenth century to the present day. The choir often performs alongside Norwich Baroque, the city's period instrument ensemble of talented local players who specialise in baroque and classical repertoire. Recent concerts have included Handel Messiah, Bach St Matthew Passion and Magnificat, Britten choral works, Parry Songs of farewell and Music for Remembrancetide. The Chamber Choir also sings services in the Cathedral on a couple of occasions during the year when the Cathedral Choir is on holiday.

What's involved

Rehearsals take place in the Song School on Thursday evenings (7.30 - 9.00pm) during term time, under the direction of the Cathedral's Master of Music, Ashley Grote.

We ask members to make a small contribution of £20 per term towards the running costs of the Choir, but would not turn away any member on financial grounds.


We will be holding auditions for new members in the autumn of 2021 subject to the current regulations. If you would like to audition, please contact our Liturgy and Music Administrator
