Choirs & Music at the Cathedral

Music Home | Cathedral Choirs | Voluntary Choir | The OrganMusic List

St George's Cathedral has a well-established musical tradition, with a diversity of styles represented at the different Masses, ranging from congregational hymns and Mass settings at the 10.00 Family Mass, through plainsong and polyphony at the 11.30 Solemn Mass.

The Cathedral Choir and Cathedral Consort sing at the Sunday morning Masses and on major events of the year, such as Advent, Christmas, Holy Week and Easter. Repertoire ranges from music by the medieval abbess St Hildegard von Bingen, through to 21st Century compositions by Cecelia McDowall and James MacMillan.
