A Live-streamed Mediation of Music and Words played by Donald Hunt, organ. Reflections by The Very Reverend Michael J. Pitts, The Reverend Canon Herbert O'Driscoll and The Reverend Karen Egan.

Tune in live to hear Messiaen's own organ transcription (1933-1934) of his orchestral masterpiece "l'Ascension," played by Donald Hunt, Director of Music at Christ Church Cathedral, Victoria to the Glory of God and in loving memory of Patrick Wedd (January 4, 1948 - May 19, 2019), pre-eminent Canadian church musician.

This meditation of music and words marks both the Feast of the Ascension as well as the one-year anniversary of Patrick Wedd's death. Hunt is a former student of Wedd and the short reflections will be offered by clergy who knew him well throughout his impressive career.

Admission by donation.
