Music

at St Anne's

St Anne’s has been a place of worship for over 114 years and still represents the best that Belfast has to offer in terms of worship, arts, music and hope.

Belfast Cathedral is the only cathedral in Northern Ireland to maintain a pattern of daily sung services. The cathedral choir, made up of boy and girl choristers and adult Lay Clerks and Choral Scholars, sings for seven services each week - Evensong Sunday to Friday, and the Eucharist on Sunday morning.

In addition to its liturgical duties, the choir gives concerts, broadcasts, makes recordings and tours in Northern Ireland and abroad.

Introducing

Eucharist

Eucharist is a service during which Bible readings and prayers are said, and bread and wine is shared. If you don’t receive communion you may still come forward for a prayer of blessing at that point in the service.

Sung Eucharist

Sung Eucharist is the same as Eucharist but with the addition of glorious choral pieces and organ music, hymns in which the congregation joins the singing, and sermon – a service during which Bible readings and prayers are said, and bread and wine is shared.

Choral Evensong

Choral Evensong is a beautiful tradition during which the ‘song’ of voices sounding together in harmony is heard at the ‘even’ point between the active day and restful night, allowing listeners time for restful contemplation.
