Support Us

With many of our staff members furloughed and our buildings mothballed, we have cut costs back to the bare minimum, and are so grateful for all of you, our friends, congregants and visitors, who continue to donate financially to the Cathedral. In the absence of our regular collection during worship, you might wish to consider making a donation by completing our online form.

Anything you are able to give will be received with our full gratitude, and we will attempt to match your generosity in kind with the continuing provision of remote pastoral care and services.

Organ and Instrumental Reflections

 

Each weekday at 10 am we will post music and words for your enjoyment and reflection. This will be available via YouTube. Click on the link under Title.

 

Thank you to our musicians who had the forethought to pre-record a wide variety of music, anticipating the government’s ‘lockdown’ preventing the spread of COVID-19.

Accompanying text by the Precentor of St Edmundsbury, Canon Philip Banks:

 

Thank you to our Cathedral family’s musicians for continuing to offer some daily music for reflection during this period of lockdown to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

 

The Valkyries – from Wagner’s Ring – female messengers of the Norse god Odin: they ride into battle on their flying steeds to take souls to Valhalla. It’s been used in plenty of films including ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’, and is a ‘hold on to your hats’ breath-taking piece – and is clearly great fun to play as an organ duet! Any connection with Thy Kingdom Come and Pentecost? Well – wasn’t the first Pentecost moment pretty breath-taking too? Tongues of flame above you, and the sounds of a gale rattling everywhere in your home: a reminder that if we take seriously the call to pray for the Holy Spirit, we – like the fist disciples – might just be moved to see ourselves and the world differently, and have our breath taken away. So join with Christians everywhere and pray daily the ancient prayer “Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your people: kindle in us the fire of your love”.
