Coventry Cathedral

Today we're heading to the Midlands and the stunning Coventry Cathedral, to hear 'There is no rose'. This carol, from Britten’s ‘A Ceremony of Carols’ was recorded by the cathedral choristers in December 2020, just weeks after choirs were allowed to sing together in person again. After months of online rehearsals under the leadership of Director of Music Rachel Mahon, the choristers finally returned to the cathedral and sounded as though they had never been away!

Over the years, Cathedral Music Trust has been delighted to support Coventry Cathedral's chorister programme through its Diamond Fund. We had the privilege of hearing the choristers sing in our first in-person concert at the cathedral back in October. Joined by choristers from cathedrals and major churches across the region, the event showcased the exceptional talent of its young singers and highlighted the transformative effects a chorister training has on the lives of young people. 

“Coventry Cathedral is enormously grateful to Cathedral Music Trust for helping us in the work we are seeking to do among musically-gifted young people from a wide variety of backgrounds across the city of Coventry. Living with difference and celebrating diversity is one of our core values and it’s great to be able to express this so practically and publicly in the life of the Cathedral Choir.”
