Visiting Choirs

Carlisle Cathedral welcomes visits from outside choirs. Choirs must be able to sing psalms, responses, settings of the canticles and anthems at Evensong, and music for the Eucharist if singing on a Sunday.

“Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth”

Carlisle Cathedral

Opportunities for choirs to visit Carlisle Cathedral arise when the Cathedral Choirs are unavailable. During the longer school holidays, visiting choirs usually sing on Saturdays and Sundays, or from Friday to Sunday. During term-time, visiting choirs are welcome on Saturdays.

Singing in Carlisle Cathedral is both challenging and rewarding. If you are interested in bringing a choir to sing, please contact the Music Department Administrator

Our new information pack for visiting choirs is available to download below, along with an application form and music lists.
