Voluntary Choir

The Cathedral Voluntary Choir is a chamber ensemble who meet every Friday evening, and sing on some of the Sunday services throughout the year when the Cathedral Choir is unavailable. It performs a wide range of sacred music, from the renaissance polyphony of William Byrd, to works by living composers written specifically for the choir.

As well as supporting the musical worship at the Cathedral, the Choir also performs in other locations around the diocese and country, and also appears regularly on local radio. The choir is a very sociable group, and sings to a very good standard.  They are directed by the Cathedral’s Assistant Director of Music, Edward Turner.

We currently have vacancies for Basses and Tenors, though enquiries from prospective Sopranos and Altos are also warmly received. Entry to the choir is by audition, for which we ask you to bring a short piece or extract of a piece (c.3 minutes) and we will then give you a short, friendly piece of sight-reading.

Anyone interested in joining the choir should contact Edward on edward@derbycathedral.org
