With a storied history and a dynamic present, the Cathedral’s music ministry is a key and distinguishing component of the Cathedral’s offering and reputation. Modeled on the English cathedral tradition, it comprises the only example in Canada of separate all-girl and all-boy treble lines; a gateway for generations of young people to a life of faith, service and leadership. Our corps of semi-professional adult singers (Lay Clerks) are some of this country’s finest vocal artists. And our volunteer parish choir (Voces Cathedrae) gives voice to a wide cross-section of the Diocese of Ottawa as well as the National Capital Region.

Whether at home or on tour, at its core the music program and its professional staff are dedicated to advancing excellence in sacred music and to fostering a welcoming and supportive environment for singers of all ages and backgrounds!
