Llandaff thins down

6 November 2013

 Jobs are at risk at Llandaff Cathedral as the Dean and Chapter seek ways to reduce an anticipated deficit of £81,000. It seems the Cathedral Choir is likely to be worst hit, as five lay clerks, a choral scholar and the assistant organist have been invited to participate in consultation meetings during the coming weeks; their redundancies could save the Cathedral nearly £50,000. The proposal is to maintain the boy choristers and to keep a budget to pay the adult singers on an occasional basis for weekends and special events, such as Advent and Christmas.


A spokesperson for the Cathedral said, ‘It is with a very heavy heart that we have taken the decision to put a number of roles in the Cathedral at risk of redundancy. However, we have a duty to be financially responsible and cannot run on a continuing deficit. We have considered all our options very carefully and feel these plans are the best way forward to enable us to save money while ensuring our choral tradition remains as good as it can be, and our music ministry has a secure future.’

The proposed cuts come only three years after the installation of the new £1.5m organ by Nicholson & Co.
