    The earliest reference to choristers at St Davids Cathedral was in 1132. The famous composer Thomas Tomkins was born in St Davids in 1572 and became a chorister while his father was the Organist & Master of the Choristers. The present Cathedral Choir is unique in the UK in that its top line consists of girls aged 8-18. The vicars choral of the choir work locally in a variety of occupations and since September 2008 three students have joined the choir to sing during their ‘gap-year’.  The choir sings at four services each week and has recorded several CDs, one of which sold over one million copies in the USA and broadcast many times on BBC radio and television. In the last ten years the choir has toured widely in Europe, Australia and the USA (three times). The choir plays a major part in the Cathedral’s Festival and has performed with Florilegium, Charivari Agreable and the Corelli Orchestra and given premières of music by Malcolm Archer, Alun Hoddinott, Francis Jackson, Howard Goodall and Alexander L’Estrange.
