On Sunday, 13 November, at 6pm, the Friends of Cathedral Music will join in a festive Evensong at St Paul’s to mark the diamond jubilee of the premier support association of Cathedral Music.
The Friends of Cathedral Music is an interdenominational body, supporting Cathedral music making in many Anglican and Roman Catholic Cathedrals and other ‘quires and places where they sing’.
President of the Friends of Cathedral Music, Professor Peter Toyne and Mrs Toyne, are travelling from the United Kingdom to be present for this special celebration, at which the girls’ voices for the first time will share with the boys’ voices in leading the service.
A newly-commissioned anthem by organist emerita Dr June Nixon AM will be performed by the Cathedral Choir, while the Friends of Anglican Music will contribute singing Samuel Sebastian Wesley’s anthem ‘Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace’.
More information about the work of the Friends of Cathedral Music can be found on their website.
