Welcome to the Chester Cathedral Nave Choir Website.
The choir is currently recruiting singers; please see the joining the choir section for details.
Chester Cathedral Nave Choir is a professional-standard mixed-voice choir made up of volunteers of all ages. The choir sings regularly for services in the cathedral, including the weekly service of Compline at 6:30pm on Sundays, and rehearses every Thursday during term time. The choir also performs concerts in Chester Cathedral and further afield, and in the past have performed works by Handel, Mozart, Monteverdi, Carissimi, Purcell, Buxtehude and Vaughan Williams. The choir has an extensive repertoire spanning over four hundred years of choral music. Above all, the choir is a very friendly group of people, with regular choir social events being an important part of the timetable.
Please see below for some photos of past Nave Choir events.
There are many ways to support the Cathedral from donations through to buying a gift or simply enjoying a coffee in the Refectory. We welcome your support in whatever form it takes.
The Refectory, built in the 13th century, was the dining hall for the 40 monks who belonged to the community at the time. The Refectory is open from 9:30 - 4:30 and a delicious lunch menu, fabulous cakes and free Wi-Fi!
