Matthew Edwards mentioned the Gladly Solemn Sound, a Lancaster-based West Gallery choir.

Their annual Christmas concerts are coming up - I usually manage to get to one or other of them - dates and locations from their website follow:-

Sunday 16th December 2012, 7.30pm
St John the Evangelist Church,
North Road, Lancaster, LA1 1PA
Our annual Christmas Concert. Tickets are available on the door.

Thursday 20th December 2012, 8pm
Christ Church (The Shepherd's Church),
Over Wyresdale, Near Abbeystead, Lancashire
Our annual Wyresdale Christmas Concert. Admission is free but donations in aid of the upkeep of the church are welcome.

The weather can make the Abbeystead venue problematic (but very atmospheric!) Christ Church retains a small collection of instruments such as would have been used by the church band before the universal arrival of organs for musical accompaniment. They can usually be viewed during the interval.
