The St. Thomas’ SPG Cathedral Choir stands one among the best. The person behind all this hard work was Late Mr I. Jaganathan, fondly called by all as Uncle. He has been a great inspiration not only for me but to many. I remember seeing uncle and the choir from a very young age. I have seen my mother, Helen aunty, Mercy aunty, Kenneth uncle, George uncle, Maria, Cynthia and many others perform to their best. I think this was all because of the training and guidance they received from uncle Jaganathan. I have also seen many soloists from different churches and places come and contribute for this choir and many musicians who have been groomed here. In a glimpse to say, this was a place for many where their talents were brought forth (including me). As far as I remember, there was no other choir, which would have attempted to sing as many numbers from great composers like Handel’s Messiah, Stainer, Maunder, Haydn and others.

I am privileged to be a part of this choir. We, a group of 11 girls, the first batch of junior choristers called “The Butterflies” who joined the choir for the Christmas of 1989, from where on the tradition of the junior choir started. There were many who joined and left our batch. Some of us are in different places today but, would be proud to say that we are/were a part of this choir. The thought of me completing 23 years in this choir makes me feel proud.

The choir has been’ doing a great job of spreading the gospel through singing just as the three letters in SPG stands for – "Society for the Propagation of Gospel”.

This is not the end… The rich heritage of singing is carried forward by the Jaganathans and there is the next generation of choristers being brought forth.
