‘Formed in 1963 shortly after the consecration of the new Coventry Cathedral and is regarded as one of the UK’s leading choral societies. From its formation until September 2017 the choir was known as Saint Michael’s Singers, taking its name from the saint to whom the cathedral is dedicated. However, the choir has felt for some time that it would like to be more closely aligned to this iconic building and all it stands for. With its new name the choir will now be instantly recognised for what it is and where it is based ... The choir has a membership of around ninety auditioned singers from all ages and walks of life and promotes its own season of concerts in Coventry Cathedral and at other venues in the English Midlands area.’
