Welcome to the Cathedral Church of St. George
in Kingston, Ontario, Canada


       “The greatest honour ever paid to a choir on this continent was given in 1954, when by invitation, St. George’s Choir sang regular daily services at Westminster Abbey during the summer holiday.
       To bring Glory to God, to advance the Christian religion through good Church music and to bring all closer to Our Saviour has been and always will be the Choir’s aim.  Their motto is “I will sing with the Spirit and with the understanding also.” “
[St George’s Cathedral, 1956]

George N. Maybee, Organist & Choirmaster 1941-1973
This painting of Dr. Maybee by artist Elizabeth Harrison hangs in the corridor by the Stuart Room entrance.  It was left by her estate to the Cathedral.  Dr. Maybee and Mrs. Harrison were colleagues at Kingston Collegiate & Vocational Institute.
