Southern Cathedrals Festival is the bringing together of the choirs
of Chichester Cathedral, Winchester Cathedral and Salisbury
Cathedral in the penultimate weekend of July. Chichester,
Winchester and Salisbury take it in turn to host this event. In
September 1904 a service was held in Chichester Cathedral to
celebrate the reopening of the main organ of Chichester Cathedral
following its restoration in by Hele of Plymouth. This brought
together the cathedral choirs of Chichester Cathedral, Winchester
Cathedral and Salisbury Cathedral. In 1905, the cathedral choirs
met in Salisbury, followed by Winchester in 1906. Bishop
Wilberforce of Chichester died in September 1907, so the return to
Chichester had to be delayed until 1908. Thereafter, the "Three
Choirs Festival," as it was then known, continued until 1913 when
the annual meeting was suspended because of the First World War.
