"World Class Music" in cathedrals

Recommended Posts

Sorry to start a new topic but I had a good look first and couldn't see anything relevant under other headings.

 

This article from The Independent is interesting:

It reminded me of the time when I was working in Whitehall (London). I would sometimes go down the road to Westminster Abbey for Evensong when things permitted, returning to the office to make up the time by working later. Several others did the same thing. I have never found anything which compensated so well for the stresses of life as that. The only thing preventing more people doing it, I suppose, is that very few have the luxury of a cathedral on their doorstep in the way I did at that time. Therefore I wonder how effective Guy Hayward's otherwise laudable initiative will be.
