This past Saturday I went to a Cathedral Concert at The Catholic Cathedral on St.Louis. They sponsor the Cathedral Concerts series. One of their main concerts is the Christmas concert wiht the Archdiocee Choir and Childrens Choir. They sand traditional carols plus selectons from Joh Rutter and Philip Stopford. Both are British. Rutter is mailny a coral composer and has written amny hyms and carols. Stopford is also mainly a coral composer. He now resides in New York and is working at an Episcopal church in the New York area. Many of the large Episcopal Churches in America have been known for their coral music. However in recent years the Episcopal church has been loosing members at a large rate. It would take to long to explain why this denomination has been loosing members and I don't want to discuss religion or politics. I hope that the Episcopalians keep up the traditions of having good coral music.
The Cathedral concerts are held throughout hte year. Sometime feature the Vienna boys choir and Chanticlear as welll as other well known choral groups and orchestras.
