The Cathedral Choir of St. James was founded in 1903 as the “pro-cathedral choir” by E. P. Ederer, and is one of the oldest organizations in Seattle’s artistic life. The volunteer choir of 60+ singers supports and enriches the 10:00 a.m. Sunday Liturgy and most major Solemnities. In addition to embellishing the assembly’s choir, the Cathedral Choir sings a repertoire that spans more than a thousand years of sacred and liturgical music, from chant and Latin motets to premieres of new works. An important part of the repertory is contemporary music featuring both Seattle-area composers and such international figures as Tavener, Gorecki, Pärt, Messiaen, and Ebert. Auditions for the Cathedral Choir are held in August. There is generally a waiting list of singers to join the choir. Dr. Paul A. Thornock, director.
