If there were one aspect of human life that is common to all people and cultures it would be music. Of all musical forms, human voices are often the most moving and astounding. Here at the Wellington Cathedral of St Paul we have a long and celebrated tradition of choral music that has stirred the hearts of many thousands of people. Music truly is food for the Soul. It is no accident this CD is being released during our 50th anniversary celebrations. Over the course of the year we have enjoyed the very best of our choral worship in different settings. It has also been a time to remember that much of the music performed this year was written specifically for our choir. In that light, every piece on this CD is unique to our Cathedral choir. We pray it brings hope to all who listen.
