The Introit from this service, Jesu, grant me this, I pray, was composed by former Director of Music, Christopher Robinson.

​Jonathan Dove's Missa Brevis was commissioned by the Cathedral Organists' Association whilst our current Director of Music, Andrew Nethsingha, was serving as its President. The work's premiere came at the C.O.A. conference held in Wells Cathedral in May 2009, performed by the Choir of Wells Cathedral under the direction of Matthew Owens.
