Chorister Events

The Cathedral Choir's tour to the Netherlands in April 2017 was the result of an invitation from the Hooglandse Kerk in Leiden. 

A member of their congregation left a small legacy to the church, to be used as a contribution towards the cost of bringing an English cathedral choir to sing Evensong. Apparently, Chichester was second on the invitation list, and we were very pleased that the choir of Christ Church Oxford was unavailable!


Cathedral Choir Tour in Holland

Our first engagement, a concert on the evening of Saturday 22nd April, took place at the Basilica of St Bavo, the Roman Catholic Cathedral in Haarlem. The choir returned there the next morning to sing Mass, then travelled to Leiden to Evensong later on the Sunday. All the Choristers had a wonderful time and thank you for having us!

On 9th May 2017, we travelled to St Paul's Cathedral to sing the annual service for the Corporation of the Sons and Friends of the Clergy. The Corporation is a charity that dates to 1655; it is great honour for the choir to be invited to join that of St Paul's Cathedral for this event which was attended by a congregation of many hundreds. With scarcely a pause for breath, the choir were back in Chichester on 10th and 11th May singing for the conference of the Cathedral Organists' Association.

Coming Up
As always, the Summer Term concludes with the Southern Cathedrals Festival where we join forces with our friends from Winchester and Salisbury cathedral choirs. It is Winchester's turn to host the Festival, at the end of which we return to Chichester to bid farewell to our Year 8 choristers.
