St George’s Cathedral Choir and Consort, directed by Joseph Nolan, Organist & Master of the Choristers, sang the Missa Brevis of William Walton (1902-1983), ‘I was glad’ by Hubert Parry (1848-1918), and ‘Ubi Caritas’ by Western Australia’s own Perry Joyce (born 1989). Musicians from West Australian Symphony Orchestra joined the Cathedral Choirs for this occasion.

St George’s Cathedral replaced St George’s Church (built 1845) in 1888. It is the only example in WA of Edmund Blacket’s work and is built of clay bricks in the English Gothic Revival style. It was consecrated on 15 November.
