Clifton Cathedral issues celebration CD
Comment Email Print
¬†As part of Clifton Cathedral's 30th Anniversary 'Cathedral Voices' proved to be a concert with a difference. The event was organised by Richard Jeffrey-Gray, the head of the Cathedral Music Department, in conjunction with BBC Radio Bristol and was broadcast on the Sunday Morning of the 30th Anniversary. It is planned to be rebroadcast during this Christmas season. Now a recording of this special event is available on CD to enjoy the celebration again. The production tells, through the voices of people who were there, how the Cathedral was built, what it meant and what it means to people now. Interviews and archive material are interspersed with music written for the Cathedral which has influenced Roman Catholic music all over the world. The CD, which is nearly 70 minutes long, features interviews with Bishops Joseph Rudderham, Mervyn Alexander and Declan Lang who talk about their thoughts of this remarkable building. Monsignor William Mitchell, Bishop Rudderham's Secretary at the time of the move from the Pro Cathedral, talks about the design process and feelings of reservation and optimism of those involved in building a new Cathedral in the modern age. There are also contributions from the people who work at the Cathedral today, including Canon Robert Corrigan talking about the sense of privilege he feels as the present Cathedral Dean and the challenges that will face the Cathedral in the future. 'Cathedral Voices' is available by mail order from Hoxa by calling 0117 974 1153 or visiting the online shop at: 'Cathedral Voices' costs £12.22 inclusive of VAT and postage and packing. Many other Cathedral events and concerts are available from Hoxa in a variety formats such as CD, DVD and VHS including the Episcopal Ordination of Bishop Declan Lang and the Silver Jubilee Celebrations for Bishop Mervyn Alexander.
