Wow !! I just received a fantastic prog CD in the mail today and although I have only played it once I`m pumped !!!   its a 70`s progressive band called Cathedral (not to be confused with the heavy metal band) The CD I  received is called ... Cathedral  Stained Glass Stories   and I`ll be honest with you it sounds like very high quality Gentle Giant  crossed with Peter Gabriel`s Genesis  and some UK in there as well ... This band is sensational and can hardly believe what I am hearing . Has anybody else got any info on Cathedral ? I wonder why they are not that well known as they deserve to be better known !

If you manage to find a copy of this CD and you like Genesis, Gentle Giant , VDGG or UK do yourself a favour and get it !  Smile


70`s Cathedral only made one CD  ..  I`m not joking its  Clap

Fine album indeed. Sounds more like Yes than any other to me though.
Love is the answer. Or enjoy very cold straight or with sugar.

I've got that album and reviewed it recently. I think it's okay, good instrumentally but not vocally and the production is not that good either. It is a cross of Yes, GG and Trespass-era Genesis.

I only have Stained Glass Stories but really like it.It's not perfect,as Chopper pointed out,but a good symphonic prog album nonetheless.

And if I remember right Cathedral are re-uniting,there was a thread about it here in the forum awhile ago.

Awesome prog gone nowhere in the maze of stupid punk and new-wave...the same situation had MIRTHRANDIR,BABYLON,ENGLAND,LOCANDA DELLE FATE etc...Sadly ocassion:we'll never know another masterpieces from them   

BTW,I think,CATHEDRAL were playing a proto-ANGLAGARD music!!!
