We have no better way of convincing you that ours is a cause worth supporting, than to encourage you to come and hear the choristers of Wells Cathedral in performance.
Every day during term time, in cathedrals and college chapels around Britain, more than a thousand young choristers sing the Church’s services. A recent article in the Daily Telegraph put the case forward that “Choral Evensong is an experience not to be found in any of the other leading music nations. Only here. And it’s the perfect refuge from a world in crisis. Anyone who feels assaulted by the weight of economic doom ... should try an hour of Gibbons, Byrd or Herbert Howells ... It’s healthier than drugs and might just put you on the path to righteousness.“
The boys and girls usually sing separately with the Vicars Choral for the Cathedral’s nine weekly sung services but occasionally come together for larger events and tours. The choir is at the very heart of the worshipping life of the Cathedral, and sings a wide repertoire of music ranging from the masterpieces of the Renaissance period to the finest choral works of the present day.
During term time, the Choristers usually sing Evensong at 5.15pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. On Sunday they sing at the Eucharist [9.45am], Matins [11.30am] and Evensong [3.00pm]. Please click on the above link button to view the current Services and Music List.
