Southwark Cathedral

A member of St. George's Cathedral in the Archdiocese of Southwark contacted me recently to inform the NLM of an event that is upcoming, and for which they are hoping for a good turnout, to help ensure the event continues.

This Cathedral will be celebrating their first Solemn High Mass (1962 Missal) with the Gentlemen of the Cathedral Choir singing the Mass.


11:00am, Saturday 8th December, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception

St George’s Metropolitan Cathedral, Lambeth Road , LONDON SE1 (

Mass sung to chant by the Gentlemen of the Cathedral Choir

Nearest tube – Lambeth North (Bakerloo line); Waterloo tube and BR; numerous bus routes. See Cathedral website for further directions.

It sounds as though there is a strong musical tradition at this Catehdral.

Fellow architectural buffs will also be interested in the fact that this structure was originally designed by Pugin -- though it was substantially damaged during the Second World War.
