This annual Christmas performance has continued to attract a crowded cathedral. Messiah proved a popular choice on the group’s latest three international tours, most recently last Christmas in the Baltic States, Germany, and Southern Spain. Because the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament is expected to remain closed for at least a year in the wake of the earthquake, its choir and orchestra will use St Mary’s Church for major diocesan occasions, and for occasional concerts, and the regular Sunday programme is being sustained in the former Chapel of the Music Centre.

Next year’s CBS programme includes concerts in the former Chapel at 8 pm on Saturday, 25 June, and 24 September. Along with the Bach St John Passion on Good Friday, and Christmas Messiah, the group sustains a highly varied repertoire at every 10.30 am Sunday Solemn Mass.
