Space for Peace will bring together local and national choirs, community choirs and school choirs to sing from Jewish, Christian, other faiths and secular sources to create a musical vigil for peace. With a theme of â€śListen for Peaceâ€ť music will be shared from a wide variety of religious and secular sources proving that we can work together to create peace.
Choral and religious groups will be situated around the Cathedral, each with their own repertoire of musical material, using the cathedral as a resonant meditative space. The vigil will be created by the participants on the basis of choice. Each group will choose when to sing and also be invited to sing by the congregation. The congregation will move around the building, lighting candles, praying and participating in creating the overall musical sound.
Admission is free but there is a retiring collection to help defray costs.
