The English Cathedral Choir of Paris

Founded in 1987 by Christopher Wells with a view to passing on to his own and other children living in Paris, his unforgettable experience of life as a cathedral chorister and developing in them a love of English sacred music.

After more than a quarter of a century of intense activity, the choir no longer recruits children and has recentred itself as an ensemble of adults.
