Evensong in York Minster; notice the choir arrangement into decani
(left side) and cantoris
Decani (Latin: "of the dean") is the side of a church choir occupied by the Dean. In English churches this is typically the choir stalls on the south side of the chancel, although there are some notable exceptions, such as Durham Cathedral, St Davids Cathedral and Southwell Minster. The opposite side is known as Cantoris.
