Grace First Presbyterian Church Choir Sings at Christ Church Cathedral in Dublin on April 14

Today, Wednesday, April 14, the Christ Church Cathedral in Dublin will welcome the travelers of the Grace First Presbyterian Church Choir under the direction of Stan DeWitt. At 1.15 pm the choir is going to perform its final highlight concert.
Christ Church Cathedral (The Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, commonly known as Christ Church, Cathedral of the United Dioceses of Dublin and Glendalough and Metropolitical Cathedral of the United Provinces of Dublin and Cashel) in Dublin is the elder of the city's two medieval cathedrals, the other being St. Patrick's Cathedral.
The cathedral was begun in 1038 by King Sitric Silkenbeard, the Danish Viking King of Dublin, for the first Bishop of Dublin, Donat or Donagh (the Diocese of Dublin was at that time a small island surrounded by a huge Diocese of Glendalough, and answered to Canterbury). The church was built on the high ground overlooking the Viking settlement of Wood Quay and Sitric gave the "lands of Baldoyle, Raheny and Portrane for its maintenance".
The cathedral was extensively renovated and rebuilt from 1871 to 1878 by George Edmund Street, with the sponsorship of distiller Henry Roe of Mount Anville. The great 14th century choir was demolished and a new eastern end was built over the original crypt. He built a new chapter house and for example the tower and the south nave arcade was rebuilt. The flying buttresses were added as a decorative feature as well. The baptistery was built in its place. Street built the adjacent Synod Hall, taking in the last remnant of St. Michael and all Angels's Church, including the bell tower. The synod house is linked to the cathedral by Street's iconic covered footbridge.
