Come and join us to celebrate Christmas!

Our 2017 schedule of festive services is here.


Music is vital to worship at the Cathedral. Many notable musicians have been associated with the Cathedral including Gerald Bales, Robert Hunter Bell, and Terrence Fullerton, and each has ensured the excellence of the music making. This tradition continues today: everyone involved in the musical life of the Cathedral is committed to offering traditional church music while maintaining as a high a standard as possible.

The Cathedral Choirs

There are four different sections of the Cathedral Choirs, offering a range of choral experiences for people of all ages and from beginner to advanced level. We warmly invite expressions of interest to join any of our choral sections at any time of the year. Further information is available here.

Over the years, the Cathedral Choir has made many tours to sing in UK cathedrals, most recently in 2013 to Exeter Cathedral, and in 2016 to Ely Cathedral.

In 2019 we will sing in Salisbury Cathedral, and Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin.

  • We still have one paid Bass Section Lead or Bass Choral Scholar position available for the 2017/18 season. Further information is available here.
