Last week, Dad and I went to Chichester so I could sing with the Cathedral Singers of Ontario.
We spent a week at Chichester Cathedral over the New Years.
Here are some pictures that we took when we had a tour of the beautiful Cathedral:
Looking towards the Altar
The stained glass window above the entrance
Looking out from the Quire
Underneath the Arundel screen
Detail underneath the seats in the cannon stalls
The Lady Chapel
There is stained glass window designed by Chagall
An altar in one of the side Chapels
They have 5 organs here!
The main organ.
A continuo organ.
The portable console for the nave organ (the nave organ can also be used from the main organ).

The High Altar
The Shrine of St. Richard of Chichester
The South Transept
The North Transept
It meant a lot to me that I got to sing and play the organ here. My Grandma was the organist for St. Richard's of Chichester Roman Catholic Church in Kingston, Jamaica and she would have loved to visit here.
