Diocesan Choir

The Diocesan Choir for the Diocese of Memphis in Tennessee is an all volunteer, unauditioned choral ensemble that provides musical leadership at major Diocesan liturgies and other events—typically in the Cathedral.  In a usual year, the choir will sing for the Rite of Election, Chrism Mass, Ordinations, and some other liturgies and/or concerts.  Participation is open to all singers ages 13 and up.

Rehearsals will be allocated as follows:

  • 6:45 p.m. - 7:10 p.m. — Rite of Election
  • 7:10 p.m. - 7:35 p.m. — Bishop's Ordination/Installation (We have not been assigned a Bishop as of this time.  We will be rehearsing music that will be appropriate for the new Bishop to pick from and will also be appropriate for other liturgies in the future.)
  • 7:35 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. — The Chrism Mass
  • 8:00 p.m. - Finished — Choral Stations of the Cross
