Music at Westminster Cathedral

It was the intention of the founder of Westminster Cathedral, Cardinal Vaughan, for the liturgies to be furnished with the finest music available.  Fortunately, his vision was shared by the first Master of Music, Sir Richard Terry, whose genius established Westminster Cathedral at the heart of the English choral tradition.  

Today, the Choir of Westminster Cathedral is recognised as one of the finest in the world, with its principal focus the daily celebration of the Divine Office and Solemn Mass.  Many other types of music are heard at the Cathedral these days, but always of the highest quality, so that the liturgy may truly be a source of inspiration and beauty to those who come to worship here.
