The Living Cathedral was commissioned for the dedication of Simpson Gardens, anaffordable independent housing community for seniors which opened in 2004in Lansdowne, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia. The title of the cantatawas borrowed from the book The Living Cathedral: St John the Divine: AHistory and Guide. The following statement by St John the Divine expressessome of my motivation for composing it:

“St John the Divineembraces a community that extends beyond the Episcopal Church to includepeople of many faiths and cultures here in New York City…The Cathedral isa living place of worship built on a foundation of purpose and inspiration…Sinceits founding in 1893, the Cathedral has stood as a ‘house of prayerfor all nations,’ inspired by the wave of immigration that took place over thelast four decades of the 19th century. The values of inclusionand community have remained integral to the Cathedral and all who visit.”

Itis my hope, not only for communities of faith, but for all people to strive andachieve these human ideals of tolerance, understanding and kindness.
