'The Cathedral Choir sings eight services per week. It has twenty girl and twenty boy Choristers and twelve men, continuing a centuries-old English tradition — indeed the choir can trace its roots back through many centuries. Concerts, recordings and broadcasts have broadened its reputation far afield, but its raison d'être remains the daily singing of choral services here in the Cathedral' ... The Main Organ 'Concept, design, placing, voicing and environment combine to make it one of the most triumphantly successful organs of the English-speaking world, a legend in its own lifetime'.
