Truro Cathedral Choir has an unbroken tradition dating back to the 1880s when services took place in a wooden shed whilst Truro Cathedral was under construction. Today, the choir usually performs with its twelve adult professional singers made up of lay vicars (sometimes referred to as lay clerks) and choral scholars, joined by either its eighteen boy choristers or its eighteen girl choristers.
In addition to singing at seven cathedral services each week, Truro Cathedral Choir performs regular concerts and broadcasts, including regular live broadcasts on BBC Radio 3, and has made several TV appearances over recent years. The choir also records CDs, often to high acclaim. Recent recordings have included single-composer discs of music by Louis Vierne, Benjamin Britten, Philip Stopford and Gabriel Jackson.
The award-winning Truro Cathedral Choir, under the direction of Christopher Gray, has a growing and esteemed reputation and loyal following.
Truro Cathedral Choir sings at the 17:30 services on Monday-Saturday most weeks during term time. The Sunday sung Eucharist and Evensong services are at 10:00 and 16.00.
