"THE ROAD TO CANTERBURY"
Our 2021 trip has unfortunately been POSTPONED to JULY, 2022,
due to travel restrictions associated with Covid-19,
but The King's Counterpoint is no less thrilled and honored to have been invited
to return to England for a week-long Choral Residency at Canterbury Cathedral!
A Choral Residency is a wonderful opportunity, but also an important responsibility: The King’s Counterpoint
will be singing daily Choral Evensong services, Sunday Eucharist and Choral Matins while at Canterbury. It's an incredible amount of great music, sung for congregations of both local residents and international Cathedral visitors!
We hope you’ll consider making a tax-deductible donation to help The King’s Counterpoint vocalists
as we set off on the "Road to Canterbury" this summer. You can use the button provided below or scroll up
to the Menu above to navigate to our "Support" page - there you will find links to make online donations,
a printable Sponsor/Donor form, and the contact phone number if you'd like to speak to David or Judith
directly about your donation or find out more about the Residency.
ANY amount helps, and as always, we sincerely appreciate your continued support.

About Canterbury Cathedral
St. Augustine, the first Archbishop of Canterbury, traveled from Rome and arrived on the coast of Kent
as a missionary to England in 597AD, sent by Pope Gregory the Great. The Cathedral is often described
as ‘England in stone’ as its history is intrinsically
linked to the country’s history. From Augustine, who established Christianity in England, to Archbishop Langton’s role in the Magna Carta negotiations and
the power struggle between King Henry II and Archbishop Thomas Becket, Canterbury Cathedral’s history is as rich as it comes.
