Whilst the primary function of the choirs is to sing music in the liturgy at Blackburn Cathedral, it has also undertaken several tours abroad.
The main purpose of the tours is to share the musical heritage with a wider public, but they also serve to reinforce the fellowship of the choir, and so its strength. Furthermore, they can establish and extend ecumenical and international relationships.
In recent years tours have taken our choirs to the following places:
Germany 2000, 2001 & 2004 • USA 2001 & 2008 • France, Paris 2002, 2004, 2007 & 2015 •Italy, Rome 2003 • Czech Republic, Prague 2005 • Austria, Vienna 2006 • Republic of Ireland, Dublin 2008 • Malta 2009 • Belgium 2013
