The music of Westminster Cathedral Choir

Westminster Cathedral Choir, James O'Donnell (conductor)


When Cardinal Herbert Vaughan, Archbishop of Westminster, founded the new Roman Catholic Cathedral near Victoria in central London, a vital part of his vision was the establishment of a fine choir of men and boys, modelled on the classic English Cathedral choral foundations, which would sing for the liturgy every day.
