Choir master: James Thomas

For over 1,000 years, the site of Suffolk 's Cathedral has been one of worship and pilgrimage. The death of Edmund, King of the East Angles, at the hands of the Danes in 869 led to the building of an abbey to house his remains. St James's Church was built within the precincts of the Abbey, becoming a Cathedral in 1914.

St Edmundsbury Cathedral Choir is a voluntary organisation working to the highest standards to provide music for the worship in St Edmundsbury Cathedral, the mother church of the diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich in the county of Suffolk. Ours is a fairly young cathedral (the diocese was created in 1914): thus there is no cathedral choir school -- the boys attend many different local primary and middle schools, and some travel considerable distances each day to attend.

The full choir of 22 boys and 10 men sings four services a week, while the boys sing an extra one each week on their own and rehearse most mornings before school. On top of this considerable commitment, the Cathedral Choir also provides music for special civic and diocesan events, termly visits to parishes in the diocese, and occasional concerts.
