Choral music forms a central part of and pivotal role in the worship at Sheffield Cathedral, with the choir of boys, girls, and adults singing regular services, as well as performing for a wide variety of special occasions in the Cathedral and beyond, including services, concerts and radio broadcasts. In addition to providing rich and plentiful music for the Cathedral’s liturgy, membership of the choir offers an unparalleled experience and education for the young people involved. The music department always welcome enquiries about joining the Cathedral Choir – please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This term, the choirs can be heard at the Epiphany Procession on 29th January, which will include an unusual motet by Hans Leo Hassler, and a trio of movements from Mendelssohn’s oratorio Christus. Other highlights include Langlais’s exhilarating Messe Solennelle, Mozart’s Mass in D, and Victoria’s sublime setting of O magnum mysterium.
The liturgy is further enhanced by the plentiful and varied music played on the Cathedral’s organ, heard during and after services, as well as at special extra-liturgical events, such as the performance of Messiaen’s La Nativité du Seigneur following the Epiphany Procession.
