“Lovely old church - particularly good for concerts”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

This is an amazing venue for music - the acoustics are phenomenal. They hold frequent musical events (checkout their website for a current listing) and the variety is pretty amazing from gospel, to jazz, to classical - something for most tastes. Great location in the middle of downtown - easy to get to.

“If you care about historic architecture...”
Reviewed 18 June 2010

If you care about historic architecture, don't miss a look at the stunning interior of this Anglican (Episcopalian) Cathedral. On some days a Labyrinth based on the Chartres labryinth is available to walk. As well as religious services, the Cathedral hosts many public events and performances.

“beautiful music and architecture”
Reviewed 19 May 2008

Make sure to check and see if there is a musical event on in the evening or afternoon before you go! Vespers (evening prayers) and Compline (night prayers, around 9pm) are both beautiful services to attend. It is very quiet and peaceful. There are also other non-religious musical events here as well. And the architecture of the church is just beautiful, dark, gothic wood.
