Choral services

Sung prayer has been offered in Westminster Abbey nearly every day for over a thousand years. Today, services are sung daily during term time by the world-renowned Choir of Westminster Abbey, and by visiting choirs when the Abbey Choir is in recess.

The music sung ranges from Gregorian chant dating from the first millennium to contemporary music and encompasses the remarkable richness and variety of the Anglican choral tradition.
