A fascinating mix of ancient and modern, St Woolos Cathedral is a beautiful and intimate venue for music making. The Norman nave gives way to a modern chancel, with a striking rose window by John Piper. Music is a vital part of the Cathedral's life, with a flourishing choir, a fine pipe organ and its own professional orchestral-in-residence, the St Woolos Sinfonia.
