Music included a new work by Errollyn Wallen and was sung by the girl choristers of Salisbury Cathedral, alongside the St Paul's Cathedral Consort.
Owing the level of interest in the service, a large screen relayed the service live outside the Cathedral. More than 300 gathered to watch and receive Communion.
