Songs of praise as girls able to join St Paul’s choir
St Paul’s Cathedral is to admit girls to its internationally renowned choir, breaking a tradition stretching back 900 years. The move comes 31 years after Salisbury became the first Anglican cathedral in England to offer girls places in its choir. Many others have followed suit. St Paul’s choir performs at events of national importance as well as daily liturgies and three times on Sundays. It will perform at a service of thanksgiving next month for the Queen’s platinum jubilee. The first girls will join in 2025 after boarding school facilities have been expanded and funds raised for scholarships.
