Sunday, 17 August 2014


After a successful and enjoyable rehearsal weekend in Stirling University recently, we're all raring to get the second half of our 2014 season underway with a second visit to St Paul's Episcopal Cathedral in Dundee on Saturday 6th September when we will be singing Choral Evensong at 4pm.

The music will be
  • Introit: The Spirit of the Lord (Sir Edward Elgar)
  • Responses: Richard Shephard
  • Psalm: 32
  • Canticles: Magnificat & Nunc Dimittis in A flat (Basil Harwood)
  • Anthem: Let the people praise thee O Lord (William Mathias)
As ever, we will be directed by our Musical Director Frikki Walker and accompanied by our Assistant Musical Director Richard Walmsley.

The last time we visited Dundee the people at St Paul's Cathedral gave us a truly outstanding welcome, and we're very much looking forward to this return visit.

Although not operating as a church now, the team looking after the building agree with us that this would be a nice opportunity to hark back to former times whilst still firmly looking forward to what the future holds for the building.
