Comment Email Print
¬†Clifton cathedral celebrates its 30th anniversary on Sunday 29 June. Canon Robert Corrigan, Dean of the Cathedral, said: "In preparation for the actual day of the anniversary we are holding some special events and anyone who would like to come would be very welcome." Details of events are below: Cathedral Voices Wednesday 25 June at 7.30 pm At 7.30 pm everyone is invited to a concert with a difference. While there will be an opportunity to listen to some music, everyone present will also be invited to join in singing some of the music especially composed for the Cathedral over the last 30 years. The event has been organised by the Cathedral Music Department in conjunction with BBC Radio Bristol who will be recording the concert to be broadcast by Radio Bristol on Sunday Morning in celebration of the 30th Anniversary. Everybody is welcome. Invitations have been sent to all parishes within the Clifton Diocese as well as to members of the local Council of Churches. The Vision for a Building Friday 27 June at 7.30 pm For 30 years Clifton Cathedral has been a stunning landmark in Bristol. On Friday evening there will be a chance to hear a talk by the architect who designed the Cathedral, Mr Ron Weeks. Ron has been a regular visitor to the Cathedral over the years and it is fascinating to hear him speaking about how the design of the Cathedral took shape. International Organ Recital Saturday 28 June at 7.30 pm Internationally acclaimed organist Nicholas Kynaston will give this special recital. He was organist of Westminster Cathedral from 1961 - 1971. An international artist he has received many awards and is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Organists. His association with Clifton goes back to 1973 when he gave the first recital on the new instrument. This is the only event for which tickets are needed. They cost £10 either from St George's Box Office, tel: 0117 923 0359, or on the door. 30th Anniversary Mass Sunday 29 June at 10.30 am For this Sunday only the three Sunday morning Masses will be combined into one Mass at 10.30 am which will be celebrated by Bishop Declan Lang. The Music Group and Choir will join together to lead the music. The new Processional Cross donated in memory of a former parishioner will be blessed during the Mass. Choral Evensong Sunday 29 June at 3.30 pm To conclude celebrations the Dean and Clergy of Bristol Cathedral together with the Choir of Bristol Cathedral will sing Choral Evensong in the Cathedral.
