The Peterborough Chamber Choir was founded by its present Conductor in 1984,  and has, from the start, concentrated largely on Church music. Over the years the Choir has sung full weekends' services in nearly all of England's cathedrals, as far apart as Durham, Exeter, St. George's Chapel, Windsor and Truro.

The Choir has been to France three times, visiting  Peterborough's twin town Bourges twice.  The third visit was to the Abbaye de Valloires, followed by services and recitals in Abbeville, Amiens Cathedral and Notre Dame de Paris.

Subsequently, a visit was made to  two of the most famous cathedrals in The Netherlands, the St. Bavo Basilica and the St. Bavo "Great Church" in Haarlem, where services and recitals were sung.

A tour of Belgium followed in 2004 when in four days the Choir sang a Saturday Mass and Concert in Rupelmonde Church, Sunday morning Mass in Antwerp Cathedral, Evening Mass in Ypres Cathedral and performed at the daily Menen Gate Remembrance Ceremony.  Concerts followed in Brussels Cathedral and Basilica and St. Baaf Cathedral in Ghent.

The choir's crowded schedule has precluded further trips abroad, having taken it to the Cathedrals of Ely, Salisbury, Westminster, Liverpool, Wells, Chichester, Durham, Norwich, Bristol, Portsmouth, Canterbury, Peterborough, York, Beverley (Minster), Manchester, Gloucester, Sheffield,  Birmingham, St. Alban's and Truro, in addition to "local" recitals and services.
