Children ages four through twelve are invited to join us for Camp Agape Vacation Bible School.

New Recording Project of the Cathedral Choir

 

Southwark Cathedral

Southwark Cathedral

Canon Tarrant has announced a new recording project to be undertaken by the Cathedral Choir in the Fall of 2015.  Evensong for All Saints will feature the Choir in the sung evening office, complete with hymns and readings, as well as pieces for organ. 
“The Choir enjoyed the recording process when our debut CD, Nowell sing we was in production, and were particularly pleased with the results,” said Canon Tarrant. “This new project will present the Choir in the form of a liturgy, that beautiful, traditional service of Choral Evensong which has been part of our Anglican choral heritage for hundreds of years.  It also serves as a tool for taking our music ministry outside of the walls of this Cathedral.”
There are still copies of Nowell sing we available at $20 per copy.  All proceeds benefit the Cathedral Choir School.  To purchase your copy, please contact Canon Tarrant in the Music Office at 313.833.7547, or e-mail music@detroitcathedral.org Canon Tarrant anticipates Evensong for All Saints will be available in the Winter of 2016.
