The Festival of St Cecilia: A Celebration of Music

FoSC 2019 banner

Help Musicians’ annual Festival of St Cecilia: A Celebration of Music will be returning to Westminster Abbey to pay homage to the Patron Saint of Music, St Cecilia and the musicians whose legacies continue to enrich our lives through their music.

Under the direction of James O’Donnell, Organist and Master of Choristers at Westminster Abbey, the combined choirs of Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral and Westminster Cathedral will reunite to perform for another year. The service will premiere a specially created anthem and will reflect on our 98-year history as we approach our centenary in 2021.
