Album Information
On Sunday September 18th 2005, a remarkable concert event took place in a small Church in Toronto to rescue one of the most important providers of social assistance to the city’s downtown community in need. The Parish of Saint Stephen–in–the–Fields — one of the oldest churches in the city, in one of the poorest neighborhoods — faced a financial crisis after 147 years of continuous service to the community.

Neighbours in Kensington Market, friends across Toronto, media, politicians and a group of exceptional artists and music industry professionals stepped up to help keep the church alive
by organizing a concert to raise funds.

It was a night filled with spirited performances in St. Stephen’s, professionally recorded and now available so the event can be experienced by anyone. All proceeds from the sale of this recording are being donated to the church to support their ongoing community services, including: Georgina House, the first women’s shelter in Toronto (1908); Saint Stephen’s Community House (1960); and a food program that serves 10,000 meals a year to the hungry and homeless.
