  • El Coro de la Catedral de Winchester es un coro profesional reconocido internacionalmente con sede en la Catedral de Winchester en Winchester, Hampshire, Reino Unido. El coro se compone en la actualidad de 18 coristas masculinos y 12 secretarios laicos y canta ocho servicios semanales en la catedral. A veces el grupo aumenta su número cuando ciertas obras musicales requieren de un mayor número de voces. Todos los coritas estudian en The Pilgrim's School donde aprenden canto, teoría musical, historia de la música, y al menos un instrumento, además de los estudios académicos generales. El coro regularmente da giras a nivel internacional, ha realizado numerosas grabaciones, y aparece a menudo en programas de televisión y radio. El coro es dirigido actualmente por Andrew Lumsden, quien asumió el cargo en 2002.​ El año exacto en el que el coro fue fundado es desconocido, pero es probable que el coro se formó en el siglo XIV. Los primeros documentos históricos relacionados con el coro datan de 1402, cuando un tal John Dyer fue nombrado como el organista y maestro de coro de la catedral. Un 1544 estatuto de Enrique VIII de Inglaterra decretó que la catedral debía tener diez niños en el coro y un único organista. También hay 20 coristas femeninas, que asisten a las escuelas locales y cantan, al menos, un servicio a la semana durante el curso escolar. Cantan con los coristas masculinas en la mayoría de los grandes conciertos, en semana santa y Navidad, y para el Southern Cathedrals Festivals cada verano (cuando unen fuerzas con las coristas del Coro de la Catedral de Salisbury). Las chicas han estado de gira por Europa en varias ocasiones, y han grabado CD, tanto con los coristas masculinos como por su propia cuenta. También han aparecido en muchos programas de televisión y radio. Han cantado en vivo en el canal BBC1 en la mañana de Pascua, y el Día de Navidad. El coro femenino fue fundado en 1999 por Sarah Baldock, y ahora está bajo la dirección conjunta de la directora de música, Andrew Lumsden, y el subdirector de música, George Castle.
  • Winchester Cathedral Choir is an internationally recognized professional choir based at Winchester Cathedral at Winchester in Hampshire. The choir currently consists of 18 boy choristers and 12 lay clerks and sings eight services weekly in the Cathedral. Additionally, 20 girl choristers sing one service a week as well as concerts. Sometimes the group augments their numbers when certain musical works require a greater number of voices. The group's choristers (only boys) all attend The Pilgrims' School where they study singing, music theory, music history, and at least one instrument in addition to general academic studies. The choir regularly tours internationally, has produced numerous recordings, and appears often in television and radio broadcasts. The choir is currently directed by Andrew Lumsden, who assumed the post in 2002.The exact year in which the chorus was founded is unknown, but it is likely that the choir was formed in the 14th century. The earliest historical document relating to the chorus dates from 1402 when a John Dyer was named as the cathedral's organist and chorus-master. A 1544 statute by Henry VIII of England decreed that the cathedral should have ten boys in the choir and a single organist.There are also 20 girl choristers, who all attend local schools and sing at least one service a week during term-time. They sing with the boy choristers for most major concerts, at Easter and Christmas, and for the Southern Cathedrals Festival every summer (when they also sing with the girl choristers of Salisbury Cathedral). The girls have toured Europe on several occasions, and record CDs, both with the boy choristers and on their own. They have also appeared in many television and radio broadcasts, including singing live on BBC1 on Easter morning, and on Christmas Day. The Girls' Choir was founded in 1999 by Sarah Baldock, and is now under the joint leadership of the Director of Music, Andrew Lumsden, and the Assistant Director of Music, George Castle.
