Lincoln Cathedral has announced Sally-Anne (Sal) McDougall as it’s new precentor following an international applicant search.
Sal will now serve as a residentiary canon, responsible for the worship and music of Lincoln Cathedral.
With a Bachelor’s degree in both Music and Divinity, Sal has served as chaplain to the Bishop of Lincoln since 2012, and a priest vicar of Lincoln Cathedral since 2013.
Chosen for her significant experience in liturgy, music and within the church, Revd Canon Peter Morgan, precentor of York, said: “Sal demonstrated skills for the role which would be at home in any cathedral in England.”
The Very Rvd Christine Wilson, the Dean of Lincoln, said: “I have greatly valued working with Sal since I came to Lincoln, and I am thrilled that she has accepted this post. It’s a very exciting time for Lincoln Cathedral, and Sal brings energy, enthusiasm and experience that will be especially valuable.”
