The Cathedral Choir
The Cathedral Choir sings each Sunday at the 11:00 a.m. service, at special services throughout the year, and occasionally sings at Evensong in the Sundays@Seven series. The Choir has an extensive repertoire of pieces and occasionally travels to other churches in the Diocese.
The Cathedral Choir is always looking for new members! We welcome members of any church or denomination who are interested in sharing in our musical worship. The Choir rehearses in the Crypt on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm, from the first Wednesday after Labour Day to near the end of June. For more information on the Cathedral Choir, please contact the Musical Director, Sharon Whalen, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Cathedral Organ
When the Cathedral Organ was originally built in 1904, it was the only organ in Canada designed by the Englishman Robert Hope-Jones. The organ in its present form is largely the work of Casavant of St. Hyacinthe, Quebec, who rebuilt it in 1927. However, some of the pipes remain from the Hope-Jones organ. The organ has four keyboards, a pedal-board, 52 speaking stops, and approximately 3,600 pipes.
