The Cathedral School Girl Choristers were founded in 1996 and enhance the work of the Cathedral Choir. These 20 girls lead Evensong on Mondays and Wednesdays during term time. Similarly to the boys, the girls of the choir are educated at the Cathedral School and rehearse before school or during the lunch break.
The Girl Choristers occasionally join with the Cathedral Choir for major services in the Christian year and for Diocesan events. They often undertake outreach events in the Diocese and make visits to other Cathedrals. To celebrate their 20th anniversary in 2016, the girls sang services at Westminster Cathedral and Westminster Abbey. In 2017 the girls enjoyed a 4-day stay in Edinburgh where they sang at both St Mary’s and St Giles’ Cathedrals and in 2018 have sung at St Paul’s Cathedral and Gloucester Cathedral.
