Visiting Choirs at Carlisle Cathedral

Carlisle Cathedral welcomes visits from choirs who wish to sing when the Cathedral Choirs are unavailable. During the longer school holidays (when our own choirs are on holiday), visiting choirs usually sing on Saturdays and Sundays, alternatively from Friday to Sunday.  During term time, we are happy to welcome visiting choirs on Saturdays.

Singing in Carlisle Cathedral is both challenging and rewarding. Choirs must be able to sing psalms, responses, settings of the canticles and anthems at Evensong, and music for the Eucharist if singing on a Sunday. If you are interested in bringing a choir to sing, please have a look at the calendar to see which dates are currently available, and then contact the Music Department Administrator musicadmin@carlislecathedral.org.uk to reserve some dates.

Our new information pack for visiting choirs is available to download below, along with an application form and music lists.
