The Cathedral Singers of Christ Church is one of the most active choirs of its type in the country. A mixed-voice, voluntary choir, its main role is to maintain Christ Church Cathedral’s daily pattern of sung worship at times when the main Cathedral Choir is away or on vacation. The choir comprises talented amateur musicians from the local area, from young professionals to professorial fellows. Its repertoire spans from Renaissance polyphony to new music.
In addition to its liturgical duties, the choir’s activities extend to concerts, tours, recordings, workshops, and visits to sing services at other UK cathedrals. The choir also has an educational role, sponsoring Sixth Form Choral Scholarships, and participating in Faculty of Music examinations for the University. In July 2018, the choir celebrated its 40th anniversary.
