Event description

Description

Each year in early October the Diocesan Choirs Festival is hosted by churches in Suffolk. In 2019 it comes to St Edmundsbury Cathedral.

This is a wonderful opportunity for both individuals and groups from churches, benefices and deaneries to sing in the Cathedral together for an afternoon’s rehearsals, and then join in a special festival service.

The festival is a great occasion which gives singers from choirs of widely differing sizes and types the opportunity to perform specially selected music in the Cathedral's glorious acoustic, in which they might rarely otherwise get a chance to sing.

Booking is free. We are always excited to meet new individuals and choirs, so please know you will be warmly welcomed if you have not been before.

Music for the Festival will be taken from the 2019 RSCM Festival Service Book Where shall wisdom be found? It provides a wide selection of music, readings and prayers around the biblical theme of Wisdom. The Festival will use music from a wide selection of hymns and songs, and a choice of choral items suitable for those used to singing in full SATB choir as well as those with less experience. Participants should buy their own copy of the book; full details of purchase and discounts are provided at the time of booking.

In association with The Royal School of Church Music.
