Sacred Music at St George’s Cathedral

The nationally renowned choir of St George’s Cathedral sings a wide and varied repertoire of sacred choral music from the 16th to the 21st century. The treasures of this musical heritage are offered regularly at the Cathedral in worship in the liturgical context for which they these compositions were written, and in which they relate to the spoken word and the colour, movement, and beauty of formal Christian liturgy.

The Choir presents this repertoire on:

Sundays at 10.00am              Choral Eucharist

The Choir sings settings of the ordinary of the mass together with motets: from European composers of the Renaissance (eg Palestrina, Byrd, Victoria), Baroque (eg Handel, Bach, Purcell) and Classical (eg Mozart, Haydn, Schubert) periods, through the Romantic idiom (eg Bruckner, Elgar, Mendelssohn), to the modern era (eg Britten, Dove, Macmillan).

Sundays at 5.00pm                Choral Evensong

Throughout the year, the Choir sings settings of the Evening Canticles (Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis) and Responses of the Book of Common Prayer (1662) by predominantly British composers (eg Gibbons, Purcell, Stanford, Howells, Britten), and anthems by composers of many countries and periods.
