The TRINITY CATHEDRAL CHOIR OF GIRLS, BOYS AND ADULTS, together with the Cathedral’s ensembles for the very earliest singers, the Trinitots and Choristers, are central to the vitality of the musical and liturgical life of Trinity. The Trinity Choir sings regularly during the academic year at the cathedral’s 10 am Eucharist, as well as for periodic extra services and concerts. The choir last joined with Portland Baroque Orchestra to perform Bach’s B Minor Mass this past spring, while a more recent performance with orchestra of Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem was sung liturgically as an integral part of the Cathedral’s All Saints’/All Souls’ observance. In the spring of 2020, the choir will sing Handel’s Coronation Anthems, in collaboration with Portland Baroque Orchestra. A trip in the summer of 2014 had the Trinity Choir singing for a week at Bristol Cathedral, in England. Together with the Girls’ and Boys’ Choirs, the choir returned to England in the summer of 2017 to sing a week’s worth of daily services at St. Paul’s Cathedral, London. In the summer of the 2020, the Cathedral Choir of Girls, Boys and Adults will be in residence for a week each at Canterbury Cathedral and York Minster, in England.
