The Association of Cathedral Lay Clerks is for the permanent, professional, adult singers of UK cathedrals and similar choral foundations. The term “lay clerk” is generic but includes lay vicars, vicars choral, songmen, choral bedesmen, etc.
The aims of this association include supporting and advocating the cultural heritage of Anglican cathedral music, and promoting, defending and maintaining professional standards of singing in cathedrals. It is also a forum for discussion of common issues.
