KOTA KINABALU CATHOLICS and Archbishop John Lee were treated to an "evening of sacred music in praise and thanksgiving to the God who made us" at Sacred Heart Cathedral (SHC) on Dec 3 by Peter Low and the Cathedral Choir of the Risen Christ.
The choir was established in 1970 at Church of the Risen Christ, where it served for 32 years before being installed at Cathedral of the Good Shepherd in April 2002.
It has a strong tradition of public performances in aid of worthy causes, both local and international, in line with its philosophy that music can be placed at the service of society. It performed for Pope John Paul II at the Vatican in 1985 and 1997.
Proceeds from the concert at Sacred Heart Cathedral went to welfare organisations like SHC Charity, Don Bosco Children’s Home in Bundu Tuhan, Franciscan and Good Shepherd Hostels.
One of Peter Low’s compositions, Juravit Dominus – Tu Es Sacerdos In Aeternum ("You Are a Priest Forever") was dedicated to Archbishop Lee.
