The Cathedral Consort (as it is known) is a mixed choir of adults.
The choir provides a unique opportunity at the cathedral for girls and women to sing here on Sundays and at the major festivals of Easter and Christmas. Boys who perhaps cannot make the more full-time commitment of the cathedral choir are also able to sing. The choir teams up with the Cathedral Choir or Cantate Youth Choir to sing at least four joint services each year, on special occasions.
Noted for the high quality of its singing, the choir currently rehearses on a weekly or fortnightly basis at the cathedral, and before each service. All music, books, folders and robes are provided.
In addition to the core activity of singing, the choir enjoys regular social activities. The adults are good at organising ‘get-togethers’ for the whole choir involving food and drink. There is an active choir association that oversees the running of these.
These are held informally at any time. There are often vacancies in the choir as teenagers move on to university. Contact the music office for further details.
