Music

at Belfast Cathedral

Belfast Cathedral 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 maintains a high standard of choral music. Under normal circumstances the cathedral choir, made up of Sopranos, Lay Clerks and Choral Scholars, sings for the Sung Eucharist and Evensong on Sundays, while the Lay Clerks and Choral Scholars sing Evensong up to three times a week - on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Sadly, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the musical life of the cathedral, including within services of worship, has been severely curtailed.

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