Canon Nicholas Thistlethwaite | Edmund Aldhouse (Director of Music)

The musicians of Ely Cathedral contribute music expressing the themes of Lent, Passiontide and Easter. Each piece is preceded by a short meditation from one of the Cathedral clergy exploring the week’s musical treatment of these themes, both in the music itself and in the theological and spiritual threads which can be drawn from it.

The whole meditation lasts about 20 minutes.
In the Presbytery.
