It’s a real joy to welcome members of Old Choristers’ Associations from around the country to Peterborough for this celebration.
As for all cathedrals, music is the beating heart of our worship here and your presence reminds us not only of the critical part it plays in our life as a Cathedral but also that it can transform the lives of those who participate in it – offering rich memories and a whole range of musical and social skills that last a lifetime.
This year marks the 900th anniversary of this great building and I hope you will enjoy not only the Festival and meeting friends old and new but also exploring this magnificent sacred space and discovering or re-discovering its treasures, ancient, modern and (with the Soyuz capsule) futuristic!
