St Edmundsbury Cathedral Music
Bury St Edmunds - All Year Round
Back to list
Music has been offered to God in this corner of Bury St Edmunds for over 1,000 years. The monks in the medieval abbey were replaced after its closure in the 16th Century by choirs of men and boys. Today, that tradition continues at St Edmundsbury Cathedral and has been expanded to include several choirs, numbering over 100 young people and nearly 50 adults. St Edmundsbury Cathedral is a popular venue for concerts and a major venue for the annual Bury St Edmunds Festival. It regularly hosts international performers.
