Charted: 48
  • In the July 2, 1988 issue of Melody Maker, John Wilde described this as "very Van Morrison circa Veedon Fleece, a song about longing".

    "Cathedral Song" is actually the title track of Tanita Tikarum's debut album Ancient Heart, or as good as; songs about or inspired by cathedrals are relatively rare, the most obvious being "Winchester Cathedral", although Al Stewart also found inspiration in the structure in his uptempo "Gethsemane, Again".
  • Tikarum's third single from the album, it was released in both 7 inch and 12 inch formats including as an EP. >>
