'The repertoire is extremely varied, and by no means all "a cappella"! It ranges from part songs and English folksong arrangements, church anthems and motets, through the more traditional larger-scale works ... The choir, which is an auditioned choir, meets weekly ... and aims to perform one concert each term, usually for local charities.'

‘The Friends of Blackburn Cathedral Music (FoBCM) aims to supplement the provision of Liturgical music at the Cathedral through an ambitious concert series at the Cathedral, providing not only wonderful education opportunities for Cathedral Choristers to sing great choral works with leading orchestras (chiefly the Northern Chamber Orchestra and the period instrument ensemble, The 18th Century Sinfonia), but also enriching the spiritual and cultural experiences of local people ... Blackburn Cathedral is blessed with a world-class Organ, built by JW Walker and rebuilt by Wood of Huddersfield. This is not only showcased to great effect through its use as an inspirational liturgical instrument, but also through the many recordings that have been made and in the regular lunchtime concerts and organ meditations that have taken place throughout the year.‘
