It is called ‘Minster’, rather than ‘cathedral’, The Cathedral and Metropolitical Church of Saint Peter in York, because, wayback, it was the the main missionary church in the area.
I have visited it many, many times and spent many an enchanted hour inside. I used to do seminars in York, at a hotel walking distance from the Minister. In the evening, before dinner, I would go for Evensong, on my own, sit in the dark and listen. It was magical.
So, I wanted to share this with you for Christmas.
