The Clifton Diocese is also served from the Cathedral and plans are afoot to hold music days in conjunction with the Department for Liturgy to provide a more complete experience of formation with them.
Since we are a Music Service, we make ourselves available to help with anyone in the Diocese involved with, or who has concerns about music, so don't hesitate to contact us. We advise on situations, repertoire, resources, organs and sound systems through the year. Our Director of Music recently commissioned a sound system as part of an RIBA award winning project and was acoustic advisor on several nationally award winning others.
The Music Service is happy to arrange for diocesan musicians to lead worship or training days at your parish.
Celebrations included in this might be Mass for special or important occasions, confirmations, dedications, baptisms and so on. We can also supply musicians for weddings and funerals. Carol services can also be covered.
The Music Service is funded by the Cathedral and Diocese, but we have to make a charge for these services since the funding only extends as far as diocesan liturgies. The charges go towards paying the professional musicians we use as well as the costs of administration.
Charges available on application.
Celebrations involving the Diocesan Choir include the Rite of Election, Chrism Mass and the Diocesan Marriage Mass.
The Clifton Diocesan Choir is formed from singers around the diocese. It sings at some of the pivotal celebrations of the year, in the Cathedral and at other places around the diocese.
Expertise is not required to join the choir, but enthusiasm is welcome. We can almost guarantee that you will enjoy and learn from any events that you attend. Meeting and sharing with other singers and musicians is always a great experience!
