Music at St Marie’s Cathedral

Music is a very important part of our worship, here at St Marie’s. The acoustics of the church are fabulous, making it a wonderful venue to experience a range of different types of sacred music. 

In a normal week, our Cathedral Choir, accompanied by music from our rare Lewis Organ, can be heard at the 10:30am Mass on Sundays, as well as at all the major liturgical events throughout the year.  The Sunday Evening Worship Group provides the music for the 6:30pm Mass on Sundays.

The Cathedral also hosts the occasional concert and musical event. There is not a regular programme of concerts, so please keep an eye on the weekly bulletin and our Facebook page if you wish to come and experience one for yourself.
