Cathedral Music Department

Music plays an important role in the liturgical life of Salford Cathedral with a diversity of styles represented across our Sunday Masses.

The Cathedral has recently begun an exciting expansion of its Music Department following the appointment of Alex Patterson as its new Director of Music in July 2020. Building on the achievements of his recent predecessors, Daniel Bath and Martin Barry, the Cathedral is now home to a new range of choirs, which contribute to the liturgies at the Cathedral each week.

Please get in touch with the Cathedral Director of Music, Alex Patterson ( if you are interested in joining any of our groups.
