Edington Online

23rd - 30th August 2020


Edington Online was our way of bringing a little bit of Edington Festival magic to you in what was an unusual year. This celebrated the key tenets of the Festival – namely liturgy, music and friendship. Over the course of the regular festival dates (23rd-30th August) we released a series of videos which featured music from previous festivals (all the way back to 1966!) alongside newly recorded prayers, readings, liturgical reflections from our clergy and voluntaries from our organists. Watch below for some more light-hearted content from Ben Sawyer and the Nave Choir back row and for a very special recording of the Parsons Ave Maria featuring our regular festival participants with some special guests…
We are raising money for both the Cathedral Choirs’ Emergency Fund which has been set up by Friends of Cathedral Music and Edington Priory Church. Any donations will be gratefully received.
All videos can be found below.
