Visual Beauty in Old Churches
Early Canadian Visual Art:
Designed in the neoclassic Palladian style, the Cathedral was modeled after the famous church of St. Martin-in-the-fields in Trafalgar Square, London. King George 3rd, paid of the construction of the Cathedral and provided a folio Bible, communion silverware and large prayer books to be used for worship. The completed building was consecrated on August 28th, 1804 and has served as the focus of Anglican life and the worship in the Diocese of Quebec, ever since.
