Song of the Labyrinth
On 22 Sept 2006, several hundred people attended the opening ceremony for the Christ Church Cathedral Labyrinth. They also came to hear the One Voice Harmonic Choir together with special guests perform a beautiful assortment of Sacred World Music from both the western and eastern traditions. After a blessing of the new labyrinth and an introduction by its designer, José Cuesta, the labryinth was ceremonially unvieled to the waiting audience, who then enjoyed walking it for the next two and a half hours.
The One Voice Harmonic Choir and members of the MantraVani Orchestra, accompanied by guest vocalists and an organist playing the church's magnificent pipe organ, created the ideal sonic environment for a walking meditation. It was a delight both to walk the labyrinth and to see others do so. To each was granted a unique experience and everybody walked it in a their own way.
