The Choir consists of 30-40 young people from local schools who attend rehearsals and services up to five times a week in the Cathedral. The Cathedral Songmen and Student Songmen sing with both the boys and the girls.
The original organ was a Father Willis of 1877. An organ by N P Mander replaced this in 1966, but was itself was decommissioned in 1998 when a Phoenix digital 4 manual organ was installed as a temporary measure, pending the commissioning of a new pipe organ. There have been a number of false starts, but it is hoped that a pipe organ will be in place reasonably soon after the completion of the refurbishment project.

The building dates from a Norman church of 1101 but a new church in the Perpendicular style was completed in 1430. There have been alterations or extensions to the building in every century since, including an ambitious scheme, developed by Sir Charles Nicholson in the nineteen-thirties but never completed, to reorientate the whole building on a north-south axis. The Cathedral houses a significant outreach project, The Cathedral Archer Project, for the homeless and vulnerable. There is a fine peal of 12 bells.
