Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II laid the foundation stone of Wellingtons new Anglican Cathedral during her coronation tour in 1954. The first stage of the building was completed ten years later when the old pro-Cathedral (dating from 1866) was closed, and the new Cathedral dedicated.
The Cathedral has grown in stages since that time, and at present plans are well advanced for the completion of the building.Choral music has always been of utmost importance in the Cathedrals life and worship, and especially within the last few years.
In addition to singing for three regular choral services each week, as well as a number of diocesan, civic, and national celebrations each year, Wellington Cathedral Choir is involved in a wide range of musical activities, making it one of New Zealands busiest choirs.
