The St Andrew’s Cathedral Mappa Mundi

This piece was commissioned by Prof Andrew Morrisson (Organist and Master of the Choristers at St Andrew’s Cathedral, Aberdeen), to commemorate his time at the Cathedral.

The painting is based loosely on the Hereford Mappa Mundi and depicts the 61 Cathedrals and churches that the Cathedral Choir have visited (and sung in) during Prof Morrisson’s tenure. As well as the buildings, the major rail routes throughout the UK are shown due to the client’s love of trains. More detailed information can be found on the blog.

A3 prints are available to buy with all proceeds going to the Cathedral Development Fund.
