During Cathedral Choir holidays, and on certain other days during term time (usually Mondays), we are glad to be able to welcome visiting choirs to sing the services in St Paul's.
In the past year, 45 non-professional choirs have come to sing at St Paul's - including parish churches, schools, colleges and concert choirs.
Some have come from as far afield as Canada, Hong Kong and the USA.
Visiting Choirs for Services
The thousands of tourists and pilgrims who come to the Cathedral greatly appreciate the daily sung liturgies, and for many Choral Evensong can be the highpoint of their visit.
The Cathedral Choir is the mainstay of our liturgical life but when they are on holiday, visiting choirs allow us to continue to offer this sung pattern of worship which is central to our mission. We recognise that this is a major undertaking for many choirs and we are grateful for the time and effort which goes into the planning and preparation.
