Music and Education

Community, Worship, Culture

We have an ambitious and innovative development scheme planned to initiate the renaissance of choral music across the Island: 

Young People

We aim to build an endowment of £320,000, creating sixteen choristerships. In addition to choral training, the yield from each £20,000 choristership will enable us to provide the choristers with bursaries for tuition on a musical instrument of their choice whilst they are part of the Cathedral family.

Song School

A new Cloister on the south side of the Cathedral will house a purpose-built Song School, providing the facilities to administer a successful music program, including rehearsal space, a music library and accommodation for the Director of Music and an Organ Scholar.  This development will also provide a teaching room, to be utilised by visiting Schools and Choirs. 

Pipe Organ

The Cathedral’s 1883 Brindley and Foster Pipe Organ is a Victorian church instrument no longer adequate to serve the needs of a growing Cathedral. Through a £350,000 investment, we aim to incorporate the current instrument into a new 3-manual pipe organ, thereby preserving the heritage of the original piece whilst improving its capacity for the future.

Cathedral Director of Music, Dr Peter Litman, is pleased to announce that ST GERMAN’S MUSIC AND ARTS FOUNDATION have been successful in their application to the Isle of Man Arts Council, and have been awarded a grant of £13,500.00 which will be spent on urgent repair work and development of the Cathedral’s 1883 Brindley & Foster Pipe Organ.
