Music in Cathedrals and Churches
These three Sites should provide access to information about the full range of music currently used in cathedrals and in Christian churches more generally.
UK Cathedral Music Links
UK Cathedral Music Links is a well-designed site with good use of graphics providing comprehensive access to a very wide range of information on British & Irish cathedrals, collegiate churches, abbeys, parish church and university college choirs and so on. Provides lists of cathedral/choir schools and cathedral organists. Much else of interest on this extensive Site including a regularly updated News Archive providing access to copies of articles from numerous sources; there is also a helpful calendar of Site Updates. Sadly Cathedral Music Links was closed in 2012 and seems unlikely to be restored.
Anglican Church Music
" This site (www.churchmusic.org.uk) aims to be a central source of information for Anglican and Episcopal church and cathedral music, with resources for church musicians, singers, congregation members, or anyone who enjoys this kind of music."
Portal : Christian Music
"Welcome to the Christian music portal! Christian music is a broad classification of music that is written to express either personal or a communal belief regarding the Christian life, as well as to give a Christian alternative to main stream secular music. While the term "Christian Music" tends now to be appropriated by 20th and 21st century popular and rock musicians, Christian music can be broken into a number of categories: Liturgical Music, Masses, Anthems, Motets, sequences, psalmody, antiphons, Hymns, Contemporary Christian music, Gospel music, and Christian alternative rock. Additional popular categories are Gospel music, Christian rap and Southern Gospel music. more (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal:Christian_music)
