at St Anne's

St Anne’s has been a place of worship for over 114 years and still represents the best that Belfast has to offer in terms of worship, arts, music and hope.

Belfast Cathedral maintains a high standard of choral music, with five sung services during the week. The cathedral choir, made up of Sopranos, Lay Clerks and Choral Scholars, sings for the Sung Eucharist and Evensong on Sundays, while the Lay Clerks and Choral Scholars sing Evensong up to three times a week - on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Friday.

In addition to its liturgical duties, the choir gives concerts, broadcasts, makes recordings and tours in Northern Ireland and abroad.






Our Choir
