St Paul’s Cathedral is not only a main place of religious cult in London, it is also a place where excellent sacred music can be enjoyed with the glorious acoustics of one of the second largest church in the United Kingdom.
Designed in the English Baroque style by Sir Christopher Wren in the 17th century, the current church replaced the Old St Paul’s Cathedral that was destroyed during the Great Fire of London and dated back to pre-Norman times. Its iconic dome is dominating the London skyline and was for many years, until 1967, the tallest building in London.
The cathedral is the largest chuch in London and the one with the third largest organ in Great Britain, with an impressive 7,189 pipes, which makes a real delight to listen to, along with one of the best resident choirs in the UK.
The cathedral has a regular programme of sacred music that includes performances of the resident or visiting choirs and the resident and visiting musicians. The most popular programme is the Sunday Organ Recitals, on most Sundays at 4.45 pm and free, featuring the world’s finest organists. A great opportunity to enjoy music at the church and visit it for free.
