This meditation of music and words marks both the Feast of the Ascension in the Christian calendar as well as the one-year anniversary of Patrick Wedd's death. Patrick Wedd was a pre-eminent Canadian church musician and frequent CBC host https://www.cbc.ca/music/organist-and-choral-conductor-patrick-wedd-has-died-1.5144718 

Donald Hunt, Director of Music at Christ Church Cathedral in Victoria, will perform composer Olivier Messiaen's own organ transcription (1933-1934) of his orchestral masterpiece "l'Ascension” on the cathedral’s 4,000-pipe Helmuth Wolff organ. Hunt is a former student of Wedd, and the short reflections will be offered by clergy who knew him well throughout his impressive career including The Very Reverend Michael J. Pitts, The Reverend Canon Herbert O'Driscoll and The Reverend Dr. Karen Egan.
