Caritas, Latin for 'charity', is a chamber choir based in Cardiff. We perform a range of music, unaccompanied or with organ, from the Renaissance period to the present day.
Formed of professional and other high-quality singers, all members give of their own time and aim to raise at least £1,000 per performance for charitable organisations and good causes.
Since our first performance in March 2013 we have put on 48 concerts and events, building a large and wide-ranging repertoire of around 300 pieces as well as raising over £62,000 for 65 charities and other good causes.
Please explore our website where you can find out about the choir, watch recordings, view our full list of repertoire and more...

£1,300 raised at Newport Cathedral
It was really good to see so many at our concert in Newport Cathedral yesterday; it’s great to report that we raised a total of £1,300 through ticket sales and donations, of which £1,100 will go to the Eden Gate charity and £200 to Newport Cathedral.
We should also add that everyone at the Cathedral was wonderfully welcoming and helpful; there was a tremendous welcome from the Dean, Ian Black, and we really enjoyed working with the Cathedral’s Director of Music, Emma Gibbins, once again. Thank you also to Phae, Lou and Jen at the Cathedral for all they did for us on the day.
More information on our summer concert will follow as soon as possible - and please keep 18th November (afternoon ) free for our return to Llandaff Cathedral!

You’ll be able to hear us perform this piece (and many others) if you come to our concert in Newport Cathedral on the 25th March.
