Cathedral Choristers of Britain to Sing at St Paul's

Diamond Fund Jubilee Concert

A new Choir at St Paul’s Cathedral– for one night only


Choristers from almost every Cathedral Choir in the land will sing in concert for the first time ever.


A unique choir of more than 60 Choristers will join St Paul’s Cathedral’s choristers for one night only – to launch the Diamond Fund for Choristers and to mark the Diamond Jubilee of the Friends of Cathedral Music.  The concert will be conducted by St Paul’s Director of Music Andrew Carwood.

The Friends of Cathedral Music (FCM) was founded in 1956 to help support music in the UK’s cathedrals after World War Two.  Annual subscriptions of 4,000 members help fund Cathedral Choirs - but cathedral music is once again at risk. 

Applications for funding are running at more than twice FCM’s available resources, as revenue from traditional sources of finance declines. 

The new Diamond Fund for Choristers aims to raise £10m by 2020, to

  • relieve hardship with targeted grants,
  • fund Chorister bursaries, and
  • provide other support to help Choristers develop and flourish

Friends of Cathedral Music’s Chairman, Prof Peter Toyne, said: ‘FCM is determined to preserve the English Choral Tradition as a key part of the UK’s national heritage and a living tradition dating back 1,400 years. 27 April promises to be a glittering event.’
