In the spirit of the 150th celebration (1867-2017) of the premier Anglican Cathedral in Nigeria, I wish to share with you photos displaying the splendor, ornate and exquisite Exterior and Interior of the Magnificent Cathedral Church of Christ, Marina, Lagos. Showcasing the preeminent Cathedral Choir, devoted congregation, and the new German Oberlinger 4-manual organ with 64 stops, 3.700 pipes, and Spanish Trumpets. I received my first lesson in organ playing in this edifice from former Organist and Master of the Music, Charles Obayomi Phillips (1919-2007). Charles Phillips served the church from Trinity Sunday 1962 to Trinity 1992.  He succeeded his father, Thomas Ekundayo Phillips, who served the church from Trinity Sunday 1914 to Trinity Sunday 1962. Let's thank God for his benevolence. . .
