The Baptist Cathedral of Europe


Update 01/12/2010 - This service has been cancelled due to poor weather conditions and the breakdown of the heating in the church



The next meeting of RSCM Scottish Voices, the last of 2010, will be at 4pm on Saturday 4th December in

High Street
Paisley
PA1 2BA

As a non-denominational choir, as indeed is the Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) a non-denominational Christian organisation, we aim to take part in services relevant to the denomination of the church, cathedral or abbey we're visiting, but on this occasion although it's a Baptist Church we have been asked specifically to sing Choral Evensong, so that's what we're doing, and the music list is:
As I mentioned in a previous post, Thomas Coats Memorial was built by the prominent local Coats family who were major benefactors in Paisley, and it's unofficially referred to as the Baptist Cathedral of Europe.  It's a fine building, with a wonderful organ, and a great acoustic, so to sum up the service:

Big Victorian Church + Big Victorian Music = Fun for all the family!
