Come and join us…
We are looking forward to a week of joyful singing with old friends and new at Lincoln Cathedral. We are flexible – some people will sing for half the week – that’s Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday or Friday/Saturday/Sunday (Thursday is our day off for sightseeing and sociable activity).
Music and Directors
The music will be directed from Monday to Wednesday by Alex Berry(Director of Music at Bradford Cathedral), and from Friday to Sunday by Matthew O’Donovan(Head of Academic Music and Director of Lower Chapel Music at Eton College). Our Organist will be Richard Leach (Junior Fellow in piano accompaniment at the Royal Academy of Music and Organist of Ealing Abbey Choir).

Self-Catering accommodation is at Lincoln University’s Brayford Pool campus (LN6 7TS) There are 6 en suite single bedrooms in each apartment. The rooms include bedding, towels and full use of kitchen equipment. The accommodation is at the foot of the hill. Local buses run regularly to the top of the hill and that there are several car parks near the cathedral. The cost is likely to be around £49 a night and there will be a daily (c £10) subscription which pays for the music scores and the accommodation and professional expenses of our directors and organists. Bursaries are available to those who might not otherwise be able to take part for financial reasons.
Do get in touch!
We are interested in hearing from singers (tenors especially) with good sight-reading skills and a good blendable choral tone. Like all of us, you’ll value singing in Cathedrals, enjoying and performing music old and new from the English Choral Tradition. The choir has been singing since 1979, so if it’s your ‘thing’ and you have a good voice and sight-reading ability, we’d love you to join us.
As mentioned above, Bursaries are available to those who might not otherwise be able to take part for financial reasons. Mention this if you contact us using the link below.
