Robert Poyser (since 2009)
The choir is a mixed voices choir of boys, ladies and men.
The first organ was built by Snetzler in 1767, of which most pipes have been incorporated in the present 1995 organ of 72 stops over 4 manuals. The organ screen was designed by Gilbert Scott in 1885.
The Revd Jeremy Fletcher (since 2009)
Renowned for its magnificent Gothic architecture, the Minster, at 333 ft long, was built between 1220 & 1425. The East End, with much Purbeck marble, is largely Early English, the Nave in the Decorated style and the West end Perpendicular but the whole welded together by the continuous vaulting from end to end. Particularly famous is the Minster's large collection of medieval musician carvings and its 68 miserichords, carved in 1520, in the Choir stalls.
