Welcome

Chapter House Singers is a friendly choir of about 30 singers based in Edinburgh. In normal times, we sing the services at St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral on five or six Sundays during the year, and we usually give two concerts each year. Our music is mainly church music, but we also sing secular pieces and cover a broad range of music.

We sing again!  Easing of Scottish Government restrictions

Now that Edinburgh has moved to Level 2 restrictions, we are delighted that we are now able to sing together again as a choir.

We sing in Eglinton Crescent gardens on Sunday June 27th at 1445.

Our normal rehearsal space in the cathedral’s Song School is not currently available to us, but we have a standing invitation to rehearse in the Cathedral itself or in the Walpole Hall as soon as indoor singing by amateur choirs is permitted. Both spaces provide ample space for social distancing, and are naturally very well ventilated.

Since last September, we have been working successfully online to prepare new repertoire. In addition to the exciting prospect of rehearsing and singing services again as a full choir, there is a possibility of providing small groups or soloists for Sunday services as things begin to return to normal.

Would you like to join us?

We are currently looking for tenors in particular. In normal life, we meet on Wednesdays at 19.30 in the Song School at St Mary’s, and singers can also be found in Teuchter’s bar on William Street after rehearsals.
