POSCIMUR (meaning "we are called .....") was formed in 1991 with the specific aim of singing services in cathedrals. Since its inception the choir has sung in more than thirty of the English Cathedrals - several times in most of them. Although the choir is essentially based in South East London and practises there regularly, members are drawn from across the country, learning the music in their own time. The choir, affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music, sings at approximately ten venues annually. It does not receive any grants or financial assistance and holds one fund-raising event each year.


Poscimur was founded by the late Cathie Shore, who was our Director for over 25 years. Cathie studied at the Royal College of Music and at the University of London Institute of Education. She was organist of a number of churches in the London and North Kent area and had recently retired after many years teaching music in schools, latterly as Head of Department.

She was a loved and respected teacher of organ/piano and voice and worked as an educational consultant running courses for teachers as well as a chief/principal examiner for GCSE, Trinity London and RSCM

The Choir

We currently have a total of over 50 members drawn from all over the UK.

All members have been, or still are, choristers in Church or Cathedral choirs.  We sing Anglican Church music chosen from an extensive repertoire covering composers from the 16th to the 21st centuries.

Whilst we aim to achieve very high standards in what we sing and how we behave we also like to let our hair down from time to time and have some fun!  

If this sounds like something you’d like to be involved in then please get in touch.
