"The Charles Wood Summer School is a week in my diary to which I look forward. It combines marvellous music in worship, concerts and masterclasses alongside the architectural magnificence of Armagh's two Cathedrals. At the centre of it all lies a man and his music, Charles Wood, whose music continues to inspire Church musicians the world over. Most of all, the week provides an opportunity for singers, congregations and audiences to share the glories of church music. At a time when the world faces so many difficult challenges, music and worship nourishes the soul in a way nothing else can compare". David Hill - Artistic Director
