Music is an integral part of Carlisle Cathedral's life and worship. To experience the Cathedral choirs, accompanied by the magnificent 1856 Willis organ, beneath the glorious starlight ceiling can be a thrilling, inspiring and spiritual experience. We sing to rejoice in God's love; we sing to nurture the soul and to uplift the spirit.
