Can I hear the choir sing?

Pre-lockdown, the Cathedral Choir of boy choristers and lay clerks usually sang evensong on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday during school term time. They also sang on Sundays at the 10.30am Eucharist and 4pm Evensong. The girl choristers and lay clerks sang evensong on Saturdays and the Voluntary Choir sang evensong on Sundays at 6.30pm. During school holidays services may have been said or there may have been a visiting choir. 

As we are able, we are gradually reinstating our full programme of services.
