Choristers & Layclerks Of Wakefield Cathedral

Directed By: Thomas Moore

A selection of carols and festive music for Christmas

The Parish Church of All Saints became the Cathedral for the new Diocese of Wakefield in 1888, and is now one of three cathedrals forming the new Diocese of Leeds. Wakefield Cathedral has developed a splendid tradition of liturgy and music which attracts congregations from a wide area. Wakefield has long had a traditional choir of men and boys.

Today the Cathedral Choir consists of boys, girls and lay clerks. Most of the boys are educated at Queen Elizabeth Grammar School and receive choral scholarships. They are aged from 8 to 13. Girl choristers were introduced in 1992, shortly after their introduction at Salisbury Cathedral. Aged from 8 to 18 they are recruited from various schools. The lay clerks in some cases travel vast distances in their devotion to the musical worship and liturgy for which the Cathedral is famed.
