The continuing popularity of congregational hymns, and the deep resonances which they evoke in the hearts and minds of so many people including millions who rarely attend Church worship are testimonies to their memorability, power, and influence.
Yet, in the 900-year-long history of the present Winchester Cathedral, hymns only began to enter the worship during the 19th century. Until then, daily worship was dominated by the Psalms which have been in constant liturgical use for nearly 3,000 years.
Winchester Cathedral lies in the heart of the ancient capital of England. Founded during the reign of William the Conqueror, its dedication took place in 1093. The Cathedral still retains much of the original Norman architecture and is the longest medieval cathedral in Europe.
Amongst its many treasures are five elaborate Chantry Chapels; the tomb of William II; and mortuary chests containing the bones of Saxon kings, including those of Canute and his wife Queen Emma.
