A Message from The Cathedral's Director of Music

WELCOME to the Peterborough Diocesan Choral Festival 2013
! It is a great pleasure for the Cathedral musicians to join with you in worship and music-making. The Festival is a celebration both of the rich repertoire of sacred choral music and of the continued performance of such great music in the Peterborough Diocese: what a privilege it is for for us all to play our part in a living tradition stretching back across the millennia. As we approach the 900th anniversary of the Benedictine foundation at Peterborough, we at the Cathedral are very conscious of our long history, but also of maintaining it for future generations. The DCF is an embodiment of such a tradition, constantly renewed by the efforts of individual singers, organists and choir directors.
