Music at the cathedral

Music has been a part of worship since Biblical times. It fills the cathedral here at Durham and can speak to people of all faiths and of none.

Who else sings in the Cathedral?

Our adult voluntary choir is the Cathedral Consort of Singers. They often supplement the work of the Cathedral Choir.

On Mondays and during choir holidays we regularly welcome visiting choirs from all over the world to sing services. If you would like to bring a choir to sing services, please email

Choristers and Scholarships

We regularly recruit young singers as Choristers. We also offer Choral Scholarships for Durham University students and Organ Scholarships.
