The Choir consists of two separate lines of boys & girls which are only
combined for special services and the greater Festivals. The majority
of Sunday services are sung by one or other of the choirs.
Monday Evensong is always sung by the girls & men;
Tuesday Evensong by either the boys or the boys & men.
There is also a mixed adult Chamber Choir that sings sporadic
services within and outside term time.

The present building, which became a Cathedral in 1919, dates back to
1458 with the Nave arcades.
The perpendicular tower was built in 1508, whilst the exterior of the Nave,
with its Gothic style main porch, was rebuilt in 1830.
There is a William Morris window in the North Ambulatory.
