WESTMINSTER
CATHEDRAL
CHOIR

The Choir of Westminster Cathedral is recognised as one of the finest in the world, its principal focus being the daily celebration of the Divine Office and Solemn Mass.
Since its foundation in 1901 it has occupied a unique and enviable position at the forefront of English church music, famous both for its distinctive continental sound as well as its repertoire. The Choir has made regular recordings since its foundation and continues to do so today.


Comprising up to 25 boy trebles and altos aged 8-13 and ten professional Lay Clerks, the Choir remains the only Catholic Cathedral choir in the world to sing daily Mass and Vespers, whilst also performing concerts at home and abroad.


The Cathedral's celebrated Henry Willis III Grand Organ can also be heard in weekly Sunday recitals, as well as in the annual Grand Organ Festival series.
