Similarly, the current emphasis is on Western music, liturgies and rituals; but it is intended to enlarge this and to engage with scholars and students from anthropology and sociology as well as theology and the arts.'

The men – now called lay clerks – come from many walks of life and their number is augmented in term time by students from the University ... The organ is the largest pipe organ in Wales and potentially one of the finest in the British Isles. It provides North Wales with an irreplaceable community asset.
