Cathedral and Church Choirs

Covers choirs in cathedrals and churches, also such as the Oxbridge chapel choirs, which have a significant and distinctive concert and recital programme, separate from and in addition to their worship service roles. I have also included here a number of chamber choirs which focus on singing choral evensong and similar in places of worship - usually whilst the resident choirs are on vacation. The Website Choral Evensong provides a useful overview of activity in this arena.

‘The main objects are: * To arrange events on a national basis, the form of which to be at the discretion of the host choir; * To encourage member choirs to arrange regional events in between the national Festivals; * To provide a channel for the exchange of information and discussion of mutually relevant matters; * To provide a wider platform for modern liturgical music and specialist training; * To provide a network for directors, organists and singers on the move or requiring assistance ... There is no subscription, and membership of the Association is open to all Cathedral Voluntary Choirs, by whatever name they are known. Since its formation in 1996, the Association has settled into a format of normally holding a weekend national event every eighteen months in either the spring or the autumn, often over one of the weekends of half term.’

'This Website aims to promote Choral Evensong by making it easy to search for services across the British Isles. Using just a place name or postcode one can find relevant information about cathedrals, churches, the type of choir, weekly service schedules, music lists, and contact details. Many people love the music of choral evensong services, which are arguably one of the glories of Britain. They are also free of charge. We think this wonderful tradition deserves to be better known.'
