For hundreds of years, Cathedrals in this country have maintained a unique tradition of daily sung services, performing a wide range of music to the highest possible standards. The choir of Guildford Cathedral is among the newest additions to this ongoing tradition, but in only fifty years it has established an enviable reputation for the quality of its singing.
RGS Prep is proud to be the Guildford Cathedral Choir School. The boy choristers of the Cathedral Choir (a separate group of girl choristers was formed in 2002), are all educated at RGS Prep. They rehearse at school on four mornings a week, and the full choir of boys and men sings at Evensong in the Cathedral on Tuesdays and Thursdays; there are currently three choral services on Sundays. There are also duties at Christmas and Easter. The main activity of the choir is the maintenance of regular sung services, but in the last few years the choir has also toured in Normandy, Bruges, the East Coast of the USA and most recently, the Netherlands. The choir has given concerts locally and in London, has made several recordings, and has appeared on BBC Radio 3.
