Evensong is sung by the Cathedral’s adult singers alone every Friday afternoon.
The Girls’ Choir consists of 25 girls aged between 12 and 18, from a variety of local schools.
The choristers sing Evensong on Wednesday at 17.30. At the weekend they sing at least one service, usually alongside the Lay Clerks of the Cathedral Choir.
