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 20 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.

GOF 2020 recitalists announced!

We are delighted to announce the line-up of Grand Organ Festival recitalists for 2020! Our seven recitalists come from around the UK and Europe, and we are really looking forward to welcoming them all to Westminster Cathedral. Dates and timings are below, along with ticket details.

Change of date for November 2020 GOF recital

Please note that we have had to change the date of the November GOF recital to WEDNESDAY 11 NOVEMBER at 7.30pm, because of a clash with an external event taking place on the Cathedral's piazza on 25 November which would have rendered a concert rather disrupted. Apologies for any inconvenience caused by this date change.
