This chapter uses cultural-historical activity theory as a lens to explore the antecedents to the successful introduction of female choristers into English cathedrals in the late 20th century in musical, developmental, and sociocultural terms. In addition, activity theory is used to assess the contemporary impact of this major innovation and to offer an insight into how the established musical culture of the cathedrals shapes, promotes, and constrains the range of possible musical behaviours by the individual female choristers, but is also itself expanded.

Keywords:   cultural-historical activity theory, female choristers, musical culture, cathedrals, musical behaviour
