Llandaff Cathedral plans to sack the choir

Just five days before Christmas, the Dean and Chapter of Llandaff Cathedral in Wales plan to make all the adult members of the choir redundant. The action is in support of the Cathedral's deficit and ignores the campaign of fund-raising by members of the Choir. The Cathedral Choir, which has appeared twice on the BBC’s Songs of Praise this year, is one of the last cathedral choirs in Wales to employ professional singers. This time last year they launched a recording, Majestas, on their own label

Further information from the ISM website, and there is a petition in support of the choir at http://savellandaffchoir.weebly.com/.

  1. why not just make the bishop redundant? far be from me to say so, but I bet more people feel spiritually moved by song than by a bishop, however charming he is.
