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 2013 Annual General Meeting was held on Saturday 21st September 2013 at 7 College Green.

There will undoubtedly be many tales about Tim that can be recalled because he was such an interesting and outgoing character! Although we were both choristers and our paths crossed, as it were, in the cathedral, it was only after leaving school that we became good friends and for many years worked together on musical projects….
The next GCOCA planned social event is a Real Ale & Curry evening starting at 7pm at The Pelican on the 23rd of December after the Cathedral Carol Service, then moving on to Shahi Balti for 8pm.
