The Newport Philharmonic Choir performed Rossini's 'Petite Messe Solennelle'
in the Cathedral in October 2016 - the first time they have used this venue
for one of their major annual concerts
April 2017, the Nightshelter Volunteers gathered for a group photoshoot - and then queued for tea and buns outside the Cathedral Hall
used, during the winter, to house our Nightshelter guests.
Here is a selection of the many photographs of the fantastic performance of Britten's 'Noye's Fludde' (Noah's Flood)
held in the Cathedral on the evenings of 16th and 17th June. This was a wonderful collaboration between musicians
from several music groups, choristers of the Cathedral Choir, St John's Maindee choir, children from the Gaer Primary School,
parents and helpers - all under the direction of Emma Gibbins, Musical Director of the Cathedral.
Emma Gibbins prepares to get the performance under way - Noah (Karl Daymond) hears the Voice of God (Dean Lister Tonge!)
Noah's sons and their wives build the Ark - and are ready to set forth
God has announced that animals will come with them, and they are welcomed aboard - chanting as they come 'Kyrie, Kyrie, Kyrie Eleison'
Mrs Noah and her gossips prefer to stay ashore - to drink, and mock Noah's fantasy about a flood.....
Mrs Noah refuses to come aboard, until forcibly persuaded by her sons - the storm follows, waves dash the Ark, everybody joins in 'Eternal Father, strong to save'
The crew, and the animals, plead for their survival - and finally an exhausted sleep falls on them as the storm abates
Noah sends out a white dove, to see if there is land showing above the waters - and she returns with an olive branch - 'This is a sign of peace'
Noah gives thanks for their deliverance, the rainbow rises, the sun, moon and stars appear
Applause from the cast as the musicians take their bow - and Emma Gibbins takes a well-deserved ovation from the packed Cathedral audience.
