About

St Chad's Cathedral Choir dates from 1841, when the Cathedral was opened. The organ was built in 1993 and opened in 1994, and was the first mechanical organ in the West Midlands.

From 2000, a professional adult choir of around 20 voices has sung at most of the principal services in the Cathedral. The main service is the Sunday 11.00am Solemn Mass, and the choir's repertoire ranges from plainsong and polyphony to music of the present day.

This recording presents a wonderful collection of traditional Christmas carols, a perfect accompaniment to your festive gatherings!
