Who we are 

The Cathedral Music Trust is a national charity which supports the invaluable work of musicians who enrich so many lives through the power of cathedral music. Our objectives are to support excellence, broaden participation and increase the long-term sustainability of the cathedral music sector. We seek innovative and sector-leading ways to support high quality musicianship in cathedrals and churches, through our programmes, training, advocacy and research.

Harry Christophers CBE, founder and conductor of The Sixteen is our President. Alexander Armstrong – actor, comedian and presenter – and Anna Lapwood - organist, conductor and broadcaster – act as our Ambassadors, promoting the Trust’s work and raising the profile of sacred choral and organ music.
