About us

Lichfield Cathedral Chorus is a choral society based in Lichfield Cathedral. The chorus has around 120 members and performs two to three concerts each year with orchestra or organ to large audiences.

Our annual Christmas Carol Concert with the Salvation Army Cannock Citadel Band is hugely popular.

Next concert: Dvořák Stabat Mater

Concert poster

Antonin Dvořák’s Stabat Mater, his first work on a religious theme and perhaps one of the most underrated masterpieces of the 19th century, was written in 1876 as the composer’s response to the death of his daughter, Josefa. The work focuses upon the Easter suffering of Mary at the foot of the cross, but reaches out to all humankind as a powerful exploration in music of the themes of grief and faith.

In this concert, on the weekend before Holy Week, Lichfield Cathedral Chorus, under its Musical Director Ben Lamb, is joined by the musicians of the Darwin Ensemble Chamber Orchestra and soloists in a performance of this deeply moving work in the glorious setting of Lichfield Cathedral.
