Traditionally this was the preserve of boys until, in 1999, a separate treble line was formed, giving local girls the opportunity to share in this rare privilege. There are twenty-two Boy Choristers. They are all boarders at the highly acclaimed Pilgrims’ School, from which the majority of them gain musical scholarships to the next school.
They sing an average of six services each week during choir term time. There are twenty Girl Choristers, who sing one service a week during choir term time. They rehearse at two other times during the week and are given help with the costs of instrumental tuition.
