Welcome to

Wells Cathedral Chamber Choir!

Church music from across the centuries

Sung in the ‘most poetic of all English cathedrals’

By an auditioned, committed and friendly group of singers

At the hands of an inspired director

We sing in the magnificent surroundings of Wells Cathedral on occasions when the Cathedral Choir is absent


Our repertoire is extensive and varied, ranging from medieval to contemporary, accompanied and a capella.


Our members are enthusiastic adult singers, with a wide variety of backgrounds, but all keen on the liturgical music of the Anglican church. Some are working, some retired; some have young families. We live in Wells or elsewhere around the county.


We sing in Wells Cathedral during Cathedral Choir holidays and other absences.

We sing at weddings, funerals and memorial services, both in Wells Cathedral and elsewhere.

And, as part of the Cathedral’s outreach activities, we enjoy visiting parishes to sing at Evensong or celebratory services.
