Cathedral Choir: Alto Lay Vicar Choral (Male or Female)

The main function of the choir today is the same as it has always been: to adorn the daily offices with hymns, psalms, canticles and anthems. The choir is made up of choristers (boys & girls), who like their predecessors, are educated at the Cathedral Choir School, which, founded in 1432, is the only school of its kind in the country, Schola Patricii (the senior girls’ choir), 8 lay vicars choral and a number of choral scholars and Sunday men.

A vacancy has arisen for a new alto lay vicar to join us from Easter of 2022 (or earlier by arrangement).

Application should be made to the Master of the Music via email, and should include the names and addresses of two referees, as well as a brief account of solo and choral experience. Overleaf you will find further background information on the Cathedral Choir.
