The 12 lay clerks (4 basses, 4 tenors and 4 counter tenors) all have a high standard of vocal training and ability and, while following a parallel career in another field, sing at services most days. Evensong on a Wednesday is normally sung by the lay clerks alone. Since the post of lay clerk is part-time (involving an hour or so each evening), it requires great commitment to fit the singing in and around other work. Since services are sung on Saturdays and Sundays, lay clerks rarely have a free day.
