The album, which celebrates 500 years of cathedral music with a host of famous choral tunes, was recorded in the astonishing acoustics of St Paul’s.

The songs on the album span five centuries – from Thomas Tallis’ Salvator Mundi to Paul Mealor’s Ubi Caritas, with Handel, Mendelssohn, Vaughan Williams and more between. There is also a special arrangement by John Rutter of A Gaelic Blessing, sung by Aled Jones. 

But more than just celebrating church music, this album is actively helping to protect it - every copy of the album sold will raise money for the Diamond Fund for Choristers which aims to help young choral singers and secure the future of cathedral music. 

St Paul’s Cathedral Choir was honoured to team up with girls and boys from across the land (one representative from the vast majority of the UK’s Cathedral Choirs) in producing this album. The massed voices can be heard in glorious sound on Handel’s Zadok The Priest, Parry’s I Was Glad and Rutter’s A Gaelic Blessing. Most of the music chosen for the album was written by composers who themselves were former choristers, from William Byrd and Henry Purcell (Westminster) to William Walton (Christ Church, Oxford). 
This recording tells a very important story, and raises awareness about our need to protect our Cathedral Choirs for coming generations.
