The Cathedral Carliol Choir

There are some 29 members of this Choir – all adults. The balance in voice parts is 11 sopranos, 6 altos, 6 tenors and 6 basses. Members come from a radius of up to 25 miles or so, although the majority live within the City boundary.

We sing the full choral services in the Cathedral when the other Cathedral Choirs are on holiday or away on other commitments. There are two rehearsals on Wednesday evenings from 7.30 – 9.00pm in the Song Room before each Sunday on which the choir sings. There can be up to ten Sundays each year, plus various special services which can take place. The choir has also sung in a number of churches in the Diocese.

The repertoire includes music from all periods with some special emphasis on the psalmody. The choir wears academic gowns with the Cathedral coat of arms embroidered on the left border.
