Music

The uplifting sound of the choir and organ as they resound around the glorious edifice of St Paul's testify to the one aim of its musicians - to enrich the worship of those attending services and to provide inspiration to all who visit the Cathedral.

There is a grandeur about our great cathedrals that invests worship with a heightened sense of theatre. There is a quality of anonymity about them too, which permits the uncommitted a greater privacy than they might find among the familiar faces of a parish congregation.

Silent cathedrals are at best awesome monuments; fill them with music and you have one of the most potent keys of man's devising for unlocking his earthbound spirit. Evolving over nine centuries since its formation, St Paul's Cathedral Choir now touches thousands with its music, through services, recordings, broadcasts, concerts and tours.

Whether you are familiar with the sound of the choir or are about to experience it for the first time, we welcome you, and hope these website pages can add something to your appreciation and enjoyment.
