A royal connection

Our next outing is on Saturday 9th March 2013 when we shall be singing Choral Evensong at 4pm in Holy Trinity Parish Church, South St, St Andrews, which as will be very well known is the university town in which His Royal Highness Prince William and Kate Middleton, now the Duchess of Cambridge, met.

Music will include Remember not Lord our offences (Henry Purcell), Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis in g minor (Richard Farrant), When David heard that Absalon was slain (Thomas Weelkes), and Versicles and Responses by William Smith of Durham.

This will be our first visit to St Andrews, and Holy Trinity Church is a fitting venue, having played host to concerts by The Sixteen and the Tallis Scholars.

We can't guarantee that you'll meet the love of your life at the service, but why not come along anyway and take the chance!

RSCM Young Scottish Voices

This Saturday, 23rd February, at 5pm our wee sister choir the relatively newly formed RSCM Young Scottish Voices, will be singing Choral Evensong in St Mary's Episcopal Cathedral, 300 Great Western Road, Glasgow.

Music will include the Introit Come on all ye people by Christopher Norton, Plainsong Responses, Psalm 100 arranged by Colin Mawby, Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis in c minor by George Dyson, and the Mozart anthem Dona Nobis pacem which has been arranged by G Strid and M Donnelly.

RSCM Young Scottish Voices is a choir made up of enthusiastic youngsters, and the future for choral music in Scotland looks bright if they're anything to go by.  Please come along and support them if you can, in this their first visit to Glasgow.

If you can't get along but you have children aged 9-15 who may be interested in joining, please have a look at the RSCM Scotland website for details.
