WNED has joined with Rogers Television to produce TORONTO’S HOUSES OF WORSHIP, which explores the city’s sacred architecture and its role in the community. This special follows up the success of WNED’s BUFFALO’S HOUSES OF WORSHIP.
Set to a rich soundtrack of ecclesiastical music, TORONTO’S HOUSES OF WORSHIP journeys past the ornate facades into masterpieces as magnificent as any European Cathedral. The producers worked with architecture experts and Toronto historians to insure that the program was produced to the highest standards.
The program emphasizes the important role these buildings play in the life of Toronto and its citizens. It explores what makes each of these structures unique and the stories of the congregations that had the vision to build them. It appeals not only to those interested in historic architecture, but to those whose lives have been touched by these landmarks.
From Tudor to Gothic, Romanesque to Byzantine, Arts and Crafts to Baroque, TORONTO’S HOUSES OF WORSHIP unveils the unique beauty of various architectural styles and the intricate craftwork that is preserved within Toronto’s landmarks of faith. From architecturally significant to simply splendid, TORONTO’S HOUSES OF WORSHIP will take you on a fascinating tour.
TORONTO’S HOUSES OF WORSHIP has been made possible, in part, by The Jackman Foundation.
