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 24 boy choristers, 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. The choir also consists of the girls choir (24 choristers and 16 scholars), 8 lay vicars choral and a number of choral scholars and Sunday men.
