Canterbury Cathedral Choir

The Choir of Canterbury Cathedral comprises two separate treble lines of up to 25 boy choristers (aged 8-13) and 25 girl choristers (aged 12-18), as well as 12 professional adult singers, known as Lay Clerks. These musicians continue a centuries-old tradition of singing at the Cathedral that dates back to its foundation by St Augustine in 597AD. The Choir’s repertory ranges from early plainchant to music commissioned from leading contemporary composers.

The Choir’s central purpose is to sing at the daily services which take place at the Cathedral. These services are broadcast live on the Cathedral’s YouTube channel, and are appreciated by a substantial global audience. As the Mother Church of the Anglican Communion, and as the seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury, many special occasions take place at the Cathedral at which the Choir plays a central role. In 2022, it sang at the fifteenth Lambeth Conference, a decennial gathering of Anglican Bishops from around the globe.

Parallel to its liturgical work, the Choir pursues a varied programme of recordings, concerts and tours. It has performed extensively throughout the USA and in Europe, and at music festivals in the UK. The Choir has collaborated with various leading ensembles, including The English Concert, Fretwork, The Harmonious Society of Tickle-Fiddle Gentlemen, His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts and The London Mozart Players. It has recorded for a number of high-profile labels, including Decca Records, Signum Classics and Accent Records.
