4. THE UNIQUE ENGLISH CHORAL CHURCH MUSIC TRADITION.

In no other country do you have the opportunity to attend sung services in the cathedrals every day of the week. After the Reformation Queen Elizabeth I made sure that the tradition of cathedral choirs continued, at least in the chapels royal, whilst in other countries across Europe this tradition faded as the reformers advocated congregational singing instead. You can enter our cathedrals without admission charge for Choral Evensong, usually sung at around 5pm.
