During every day of Holy Week this year, we released a video reflection by a member of the Cathedral Chapter alongside a video recording of a piece of music, both relevant for the particular day.
The reflections can all be viewed again below and if you’d like to watch the musical performances released during Holy Week, visit the Video webcasts page.
Now more than ever, support is needed to sustain the Cathedral and all that it does. If you’re able to support please visit the Bounce Back Appeal: Wells Cathedral Just Giving page.
The reflection for Monday of Holy Week comes from the Chancellor, Dr Rob James.
The reflection for Tuesday of Holy Week comes from the Venerable Anne Gell, Archdeacon.
The reflection for Wednesday of Holy Week is given by the Precentor, the Reverend Canon Nicholas Jepson-Biddle.

This Good Friday, Canon Angela Tilby was to give a series of talks based on images of the cross. As we are unable to go ahead with these, we would like to share these talks with you to read and reflect on in your own time.
Angela added: “I am very sorry not to be with you at Wells Cathedral this Good Friday. My talks were to be based on four different images of the cross, and I was going to reflect on how these different images might help us enter more deeply into what Good Friday is all about. But this year we will all be observing Holy Week, Good Friday and Easter from our homes. So, at the invitation of the Precentor, I would like to offer a snapshot of the talks I was intending to give.
In spite of the difficulties and challenges that face us all at the moment I wish you all a very happy Easter in the lovely city and cathedral of Wells.”
