Former Assistant Master of the Music Simon Johnson has been appointed as Master of Music at Westminster Cathedral.  He has been organist and assistant director of music at St Paul’s Cathedral since 2008 and will take up his new post on 1 September 2021.  He will join former Organ Scholar Marco Sever who took up his post as Organ Scholar of Westminster Cathedral last September.

Merry Christmas 2020

Wishing you all a
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

In these strange times when many choristers and musicians are unable to sing or play, we can but look forward to happier times ahead. The Cathedral Choir has been able to sing for some services with stringent anti-virus measures and distancing in place but it is far from normal.

If you can, please consider supporting the music in the Cathedral through the Cathedral Music Trust and please do visit the Cathedral YouTube channel for upcoming live broadcasts of the Christmas services and recordings of services over the last few months.

With best wishes,

Richard Lilley
