Current Activities of The Wells Cathedral Voluntary Choir

In 2017 the Choir has agreed to sing a record number of 50 liturgical services at Wells Cathedral. This includes 8 weekends when all 4 services will be undertaken. We are pleased that Choral Matins is still sung at Wells on Sundays. On 12 other dates, we sing Choral Evensong.

In January, we completed our busy Christmas period singing Solemn Eucharist on the feast of Epiphany before taking a well-earned break.

In March, we have our AGM and on March 20th sing for the Open Door Service when Volunteers gather to celebrate the beginning of the Cathedral’s visitor season. On June 24th we join with singers from Parish choirs throughout the Diocese of Bath & Wells for a joint Choral Evensong in Wells Cathedral.

From 31st July to 6th August, the Choir will be in residency at Gloucester Cathedral where in addition to 7 liturgical services we will also sing at a wedding on the Saturday afternoon.

  • On 30th September, we combine with the Wells Cathedral Choir for a celebration of Choral Evensong.
  • In November, we will be singing a Solemn Eucharist on All Saints Day, and a Requiem on All Souls Day
  • In December, the choir will be singing 11 services in the Cathedral, including all three on Christmas Eve. A busy year as always, and no doubt there will be weddings and memorial services to add to the mix as well!
