Bradford Cathedral Choir

Bradford Cathedral Choir

Bradford Cathedral Choir is at the heart of the Cathedral's music making.

There are two fully independent top lines of boy and girl choristers and the children are drawn from a wide number of schools across the region. They sing together with the lay clerks and choral scholars. Adult sopranos combine with the lay clerks and scholars to form the Cathedral Consort.

In addition to singing for Cathedral services, the Choir tours regularly within the UK and has toured internationally, presents concerts and sings services within and outside the diocese, as well as recording and broadcasting on occasion.

                

The Choir's repertoire is extensive, ranging from plainchant to the present day, and the Choir continues to establish an enviable reputation for the standard of its singing. A recording of settings of the Evening Canticles, including our own Bradford Service by celebrated composer Humphrey Clucas, was released in December 2013.

Recent tours have included visits to Edinburgh, Peterbrough, Bristol and Durham. The Choir has recently broadcast on national radio and television, including Sunday Half Hour, Sunday Worship, BBC Songs of Praise and Premier Radio.

 

The choir is trained and conducted by Alexander Berry, Organist & Director of Music.

We would like to record here our thanks to the Friends of Cathedral Music for their generous support towards invididual tuition for choristers at Bradford.
