Music plays a large part in the life of St Andrew's Cathedral. Its liturgies are greatly enriched by the centuries old tradition of Anglican choral and organ music. The Cathedral has been well served by a long line of gifted organists, and the Cathedral Choir of children, choral scholars and lay clerks has an enviable reputation for maintaining the highest standards in choral music. The building's fine acoustic makes it a much sought after space for concerts and recitals.
There are two sung services every Sunday.
Sung Eucharist at 10.45am
The Scottish Liturgy of 1982 with choral settings, hymns, sermon and communion.
Choral Evensong at 3.30pm
The historic order for evening from the Book of Common Prayer (1928), with hymns, psalm, canticles, anthem, and chanted prayers.
This Saturday midday concert series was established over 10 years ago, and recitals take place 52 weeks of the year. Each recital lasts for approximately 30 minutes, and is followed by a light lunch which everyone is welcome to share. Performers include a wide variety of ,both local and visiting. Concerts are free, but donations are invited and always welcome.
