Following many years of tradition St. Marks Cathedral in Shreveport has utilized a Brass ensemble and Timpani to augment its choir and organ at the Sunday morning Easter service. Such a glorious sound it is that many of the congregation at the conclusion of the service gather around the choir loft and spill into the hallway to hear the Vidor Toccata, an anual tradition. Nothing can compare. Afterward in the courtyard the children run around stuffing their baskets with colored eggs filled with candy.
