Music and Meditation – Tuesdays in Lent

The musicians of Ely Cathedral contribute a piece of J S Bach’s organ music appropriate to the season and themes of Lent. The piece is preceded by a short meditation by one of the Cathedral Clergy exploring the music itself and the theological and spiritual threads which can be drawn from it. The whole meditation lasts about 20 minutes.
