For over 30 years, the Music Foundation Trust has provided critical financial support to sustain Exeter Cathedral’s musical tradition. It funds choral outreach work, robes and sheet music, maintenance of the Cathedral organs, as well as scholarships for choristers, choral scholars, organ scholars and much more.
Music is the lifeblood of Exeter Cathedral. It has been for hundreds of years. Our choir and music team enrich daily worship and special occasions in Devon, and their concert performances bring joy to audiences around the world.
Our musical life brings incalculable benefits to the young lives of our choristers and scholars too. Time and again, it has changed the trajectory of lives in ways that could never have been imagined. It teaches life skills and values such as teamwork, trust and responsibility, and provides world-class performance opportunities which will be remembered for a lifetime.
At Exeter Cathedral, we want to continue to build a community of choristers and musical scholars that offers opportunity to all, regardless of race, gender or social background.
A donation to the Music Foundation Trust is not just a donation for present, but an investment in our musical future. Exeter Cathedral choristers are highly sought after. They take their music with them, and share it with those around them for many years after their time here, many as professional musicians.
