The Boys' Choir was reformed at the beginning of the 20th century, robed in the red cassocks and white surplices which the choir still wears.
In the mid 1990s, a girls' choir was formed and, in 2000, the girls' choir and boys' choir were amalgamated to form 'the choristers'.
At the present time, there are some 15 choristers comprising boys and girls. Choristers attend local schools and practise at the Abbey two afternoons a week after school, once a week with the senior choir in the evening and, of course, sing at services on Sundays.
There is a senior choir to which a number of choral scholarships are awarded on an annual basis.
For further information, or to arrange an audition for the choristers (boys and girls aged 8+) or the senior choir, please contact the Abbey's Director of Music:
