‘To sing is to pray twice’ – St Augustine of Hippo

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:

In addition to the Choristership options listed here you may wish to fund an Annual or Permanent Choristership which are detailed below. If this is something you are interested in, please contact the Grants and Donations Office and we will be happy to discuss your options further.

A full Annual Choristership is £3,500 and should you be able to support one of these, it will be given out at the Choristership Celebration Service in January in your name and to which you will be invited to make the presentation should you wish.

A full Choristership Endowment is £50,000 and ensures that each and every year in perpetuity, a young person will be awarded a Choristership in your name as well as a unique package which is also available for support at this level.
