Although it has its roots in the early 15th Century, Manchester Cathedral didn't become a Cathedral until 1847. It was founded in 1421 as a collegiate church connected to the new college of priests, which now houses the choir school and Chethams College of Music. Major rebuilding occurred in the 15th and 16th Centuries, and again in the 19th. Severe bomb damage was sustained in 1940 which led to more restoration work.

Although not much remains of the original church, the Cathedral today is an impressive building with some fine medieval and Tudor remains. Its wooden roof, screens and choir stalls are particularly treasured. It is a haven of peace in the middle of the enormous city, and a wonderful place for music.

Acoustic Triangle will be conducting workshops in the Cathedral with students from local schools, including Chethams - where Gwilym Simcock was once head boy, incidentally!

Special thanks to Stephen Threlfall, David Chatterton and Nicola Mason at Chethams, and the clergy and staff at the Cathedral.
