Music at Saint Mary's Cathedral

The Diocese of Middlesbrough has a thriving music tradition.

Our six choirs sing regularly for the liturgies at  St Mary's Cathedral; these include the Boys' Choir, Senior Girl's Choir, Junior Girl's Choir, Ladies' Schola Cantorum, Men's  Schola Cantorum and the Adult Choir. The Cathedral also benefits from a music group. 

The Diocesan Choir joins with the Cathedral Choirs at all major diocesan occasions.
