Organ music to accompany your vaccine shot

Organ music to accompany your vaccine shot

Salisbury Cathedral is operating as a Coronavirus vaccine center. That provides organist John Challenger with a captive and appreciative audience.

CBC As it Happens:

Challenger says the cathedral’s dean, Nicholas Papadopulos, offered the building as a hub as soon as he heard the news that the vaccine was on its way to England. He pitched the building due to its beauty, size and ventilation.

“I’ve been quite fortunate throughout this pandemic in that I have largely been able to continue to play the wonderful instruments that we have in the cathedral, but not to people,” Challenger said. “It’s just wonderful to have reactions again. It makes it so much more worthwhile.”

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
