Music

Music is at the heart of our life and spirituality at Leeds Minster.

‘They who sing pray twice’

This well-known saying, sometimes ascribed to St Augustine, contains an important truth. Singing is an utterance that comes from deep within, combining breath, music and word. So music is at the heart of our life and spirituality at Leeds Minster. It enriches our worship, draws us towards something bigger than ourselves, raises our spirits, and expresses things that we cannot quite put into words.

Live music can be heard in Leeds Minster in our services, in the organ recitals given on Friday lunchtimes, and in recitals and concerts given by St Peter’s Singers and other visiting choirs.

This is made possible by a strong community of committed and skilled musicians for whom making music in Leeds Minster brings great joy.
