The Music

We perform both religious and secular music, ensuring the mixture of music is fun and engaging for all ages.

Church Music:
We prepare to sing four church services through the week:

  • Compline (Wednesday evening), a calm, reflective, mid-week evening service for the whole camp – either a traditional plainsong Compline or a Taizé-style service comprising a series of chants and multi-lingual readings.
  • Evensong in Carlisle Cathedral (Friday afternoon), a highlight of the week for many in this beautiful building.
  • Eucharist in St Lawrence’s, Morland (Sunday morning), before which the whole Camp sings in procession through the village.
  • Final Thanksgiving Service in St Lawrence’s, Morland (Sunday afternoon).

The church music sung embraces a wide variety of periods and styles and composers.

Concert Music
A concert of secular music, in a range of contemporary styles, and often including pieces specifically written for Morland Choristers’ Camp.

The Camp gratefully acknowledges the substantial contribution from the Westmorland Arts Trust to the costs of staging the 50th Anniversary Concert.
