Our Magazine

Join as a Friend or Patron to receive Cathedral Music through your door twice a year.

Enjoy exclusive interviews with the biggest names from across the choral world, discover new sacred works for choir and organ, and delve deeper into the latest books and CDs.

I always enjoy the free publications for subscribers such as Cathedral Music magazine which is packed with interesting articles – I read it from cover to cover!

Mark Bellis, Friend of Cathedral Music Trust

I have thoroughly enjoyed being a Friend and Subscriber of Cathedral Music Trust for the past sixteen years. During that time, I have had the pleasure and privilege of visiting many of our country’s choral foundations, meeting some wonderful like-minded people, whom I now count as firm friends, and attending a wide range of events, services, talks and recitals. Through this scheme, I can support our country’s superb choral tradition, whilst satisfying my own appetite for excellent choral and organ music.
