”The sweetest music this side of heaven”

A melodic future?

Music, whether through singing or playing, is an integral part of Cathedral life.

We hope to continue to be able to offer choristerships to any child with the talent and desire to sing. However we rely on the generosity of our music supporters to achieve this.

The Choir also welcomes gifts of all levels in support of its work to ensure the Cathedral's choral traditions can continue to inspire.

Add to our Music Endowment Fund

The Cathedral manages two dedicated endowment funds. Our goal is to:

  • establish fully endowed choristerships for Choristers at the Chorister School
  • continue our outreach work with schools throughout the region

For more information, please contact the Development team on 0191 374 4079 or email

What is an endowment fund?

It's an investment fund funded entirely by donations. The principal amount invested, or capital, remains intact. However the income, or interest, released every year, can be used for projects.

Other ways to help Cathedral music

You can donate online, by cheque or in person.
