The Three Cathedrals Choral Festival 2013 has drawn to a close. What a fabulous weekend of choral music, entertaining stories from Dr. Giles Bryant, jazz, food, art, and fellowship. The Saturday evening concert left many awestruck as the eighty-two voices of the three cathedral choirs came together for the first time as, not only music, but voices echoed history.
Andrew Keegan Mackriell, Director of Music and Cathedral Organist in London, was quoted in the London Community News as saying “I haven’t heard the cathedral this full of sound of this quality before. It’s absolutely phenomenal.”
The Artistic Directors of the Three Cathedrals Festival 2013 were particularly delighted to receive a congratulatory message from the Development Director of the Three Choirs Festival in England – the “mother” three choir festival which has been running since the early eighteenth century and after which the Southern Cathedrals Festival (established in 1904 but running annually since 1960) and our Three Cathedrals Choral Festival were modelled.
It was a pleasure for St. Paul’s Cathedral in London to welcome warmly, not only the three choirs, their organists, and Directors of Music from St. Paul’s Cathedrals in Buffalo and Detroit, but the very many people who visited over the weekend.
Next year’s Festival will again be held in London, Ontario, Canada at St. Paul’s Cathedral tentatively from May 2-4, 2014. The three renowned choirs from St Paul’s Cathedral in Buffalo, Detroit, and London will again come together for a springtime weekend to celebrate the power and beauty of our Cathedral tradition.
The 2014 Festival is certain to be presenting new and excitingly varied opportunities to hear musicians from all three cathedrals and the wider community.
We look forward to welcoming you to London for The Three Cathedrals Choral Festival 2014!
