In keeping with the great tradition of English Cathedral Music there has been a choir at Durham for over six hundred years. This almost unbroken tradition of praising God in music continues to the present day. Evensong is sung in the Cathedral every day of the week except Monday, and there are three choral services each Sunday.

It is with great regret that we learned recently of the retirement of James Lancelot at the end of August in 2017. He has been our excellent and much-loved Master of the Choristers and Organist for 32 years and he will be greatly missed in Durham

DCCA is a registered charity (Charity number 1078233).  


Our purpose is to support the provision of Sacred Choral Music provided by the organists, by Durham Cathedral Choir, and by Durham Cathedral Consort of Singers, at Durham Cathedral or elsewhere, thus helping to ensure that its tradition is maintained and developed as part of the Cathedral’s worship and heritage.


One of our main aims is to acquire enough funds 'to ensure that no child with the talent and desire to become a chorister should be turned away for lack of funding.' The proceeds from almost all our events therefore go towards our Chorister Bursary Fund.

Unfortunately we had to make a change to the concert on 24/06/17 due to the indisposition of the Lutenist. The Durham Cathedral Choral Scholars have nobly agreed to step in to give us a light-hearted concert instead, titled ‘An evening with Durham Cathedral Choral Scholars’. This concert will be held in the North Transept starting at 19.30 with a reception in the Chapter House afterwards.
