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 Evensong in St Lawrence’s, Morland (Sunday afternoon), preceded by an Organ Recital performed by choristers and staff.

The church music sung embraces a wide variety of periods and styles and composers – the church music list since 1980 may be found here.

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

A list of the main concert items since 1991 may be found here.

Here is a lo-res MP3 sample (1.12mb) of the 2003 Carlisle evensong processional hymn:
