Today’s Cathedral Choir consists of boy and girl choristers (aged 8 – 13) and professional adult singers, known as Lay Clerks. The Choir sing six services each week and at the great festivals of Christmas and Easter. CD recordings, broadcasts, concerts and tours are a major part of the Choir’s schedule.
Ripon Cathedral has a commitment to sustaining the rich English choral tradition and to music education in the community. The training and experience involved are without parallel, giving an opportunity to sing some of the finest and most uplifting music ever written for the human voice in some of the grandest settings.
