Here at St David’s Cathedral we have put together a schedule of tours, demonstrations and displays and we look forward to welcoming you to the Cathedral over the Open House weekend of Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th November.

Singers of Southern Tasmania present two performances only of a little known oratorio by G. F. Handel called “The Triumph of Time and Truth.”
Handel’s last oratorio may have never been performed in Australia, and indeed, rarely around the world. The reason is that it has never been published. Nevertheless, it contains all the greatness, fireworks and beauty one expects from Handel’s choral works. Through many hours of transcribing and reconstruction from an old 1865 score, Hobart audiences now have the unique opportunity to hear this remarkable work. If you like The Messiah, you simply can’t afford to miss this!
- Friday 19th November at 7pm
- Sunday 21st November at 2pm
