‘Nowadays, when all life on earth could be ended by the pressing of a few buttons, St Magnus, martyr and peace-maker, emerges as a more powerful and radiant symbol than ever before.’ George Mackay Brown
The exhibition fills the cathedral with outstanding expressions of creativity using floral art to explore the themes.
The improvements are the next step in work which has been ongoing at the Cathedral since the 1990s.
Even on a really busy day when the centre of the toon is hotching with cruise ship visitors and Orcadians out shopping it remains a place of peace and tranquility.
