(AP) Jay-Z has dropped by an English cathedral to see the inspiration for his latest album an 800-year-old parchment copy of the Magna Carta.


The musician visited Salisbury Cathedral in southwest England to see one of only four surviving original copies of the 1215 proclamation that is considered the founding constitutional document of the English-speaking world.


Jay-Z's chart-topping album "Magna Carta Holy Grail" is partly inspired by the document, whose name means the Great Charter.


The cathedral said Thursday that Jay-Z spent an hour at the church on Sunday, meeting the dean, Rev. June Osborne, and some of the choristers.


Osborne said the star had been "a delightful guest."


The 750-year-old cathedral is currently displaying the artwork for the album alongside its copy of the original Magna Carta.
