Merry Christmas!

There’s a new addition to the GCOCA news items this Christmas: A new newsletter! With thanks to all the contributors, it can be viewed and downloaded here.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the Cathedral Carol Service on December 23rd; a day which holds special meaning to those of us privileged to have know Dr John Sanders. On the 10th anniversary of his passing, the Cathedral will play host to the premier of a specially commissioned work by David Bednall.

The dedication of the work follows:

Jointly commissioned by The Sanders Society and the Gloucester Cathedral Old Choristers’ Association to mark the 10th Anniversary of the death of John Sanders, Organist and Master of the Choristers at Gloucester Cathedral, 1967-1994.

For Adrian Partington and the Choir of Gloucester Cathedral, and first performed at the Christmas Carol Services there, 2013.
