There is something about beautiful music that can move the soul. Lincoln Cathedral is fortunate to have a long tradition of musical excellence, and our choristers and choral scholars learn a great deal as they hone their skills within Lincoln’s magnificent choir. Our young choristers come from a wide range of local primary and secondary schools, and work hard to combine their musical studies alongside their important schoolwork.

There are a range of ways you can help to give a young person this unique opportunity from just £1 upwards. Take a look at the Choristership options below and select one that is right for you:

Choristership Donations

All donations in support of choristerships that are not an endowment or a named bursary, are collected together to form the Imp Choristership Bursary and the St Hugh Choristership Bursary. Donations to these choristership bursaries can be of any amount, are are really important in helping support the young people in the choir.

Named Choristership Bursary

A Named Choristership Bursary supports the full cost of a choristership for one year (£7,350 at 2022 costings). Should you be able to support one of these, it will be given out at the Choristership Celebration Service in January in your name, or the name, and to which you will be invited to make the presentation should you wish.

Named Choristership Endowment

A Named Choristership Endowment gives you the reassurance of knowing that a chorister will wear a named Choristership Medallion in your name for perpetuity. If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Matthew Tarling, the Fundraising Manager on 01522 561614, or speak to the Precentor after a service.
