Field Recording Set #23 – Christchurch Cathedral


A collection of field recordings, set 23

Upon reaching Christchurch`s main square in early 2009, and sitting down across from the cathedral, I sighed, and knew the journey was over. Cathedral Square was the last place I had wanted to visit, the final stop. It had taken five months to travel all around Australia and New Zealand, and being here meant the time had come to go home. I felt satisfied, if a little sad. The cathedral has since held a very special place for me.Very sadly, in the February 2011 earthquake, on top of all damage and suffering, the building was destroyed.

To those who felt that quake:
