We're delighted to share the news of this very special project which was filmed at the Cathedral last month. On Friday 23 October, we welcomed the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to the Cathedral to film a Christmas Celebration concert with John Rutter and special guests including Simon Callow, Melanie Marshall, Roderick Williams and the Cathedral's own Master of the Music, Andrew Lucas.
