St Mungo: A Cantata for Schools
By David Morris and Gerry Fitzpatrick
This revival of the St Mungo Cantata brings back many happy memories of the celebrations of St Mungo during Glasgow’s Year of Culture in 1990, when so many schools and choirs were involved in events in Glasgow Cathedral, in St Mungo’s, Townhead, in the Kelvin Hall and in schools in Glasgow, Fife and Renfrewshire. The photograph above is an encouraging sign that the enthusiasm seen then can be matched today in Mungo’s city during the year of his 14th Centenary.
The Year of Mungo began with Archbishop Conti’s STV greeting from the St Mungo Museum aided by children from St Rose of Lima Primary; it continued with the Glasgow Churches Together Vigil of St Mungo – a Vespers – in St Mungo’s or Glasgow Cathedral supported by the St Mungo Singers, then the Mass of St Mungo in St Andrew’s Cathedral, the Week of Prayer Service in St Columba’s Gaelic Church, and the Mass of our Celtic Roots during the Celtic Connections Festival. The St Mungo’s Mass with children (photo above) involved about 25 schools in St George’s, Penilee, supported by St Roch’s Ceili Band, harpists, ensemble and Piper, and the ecumenical Service for the City took place in the City Chambers with the Church Leaders, the Lord Provost and city and civic representatives, the St Mungo Singers, members of the Glasgow Gaelic choirs, the Glasgow Gaelic School, children from Our Lady of the Annunciation Primary, and Harpist and Piper.
Mungo 1400 continued with a pilgrimage to Culross before the summer, where almost 100 people were welcomed by the Minister of the Abbey Church where St Mungo grew up, and brought tokens of respect from the Lord Provost and from Glasgow Churches Together. Then in the autumn there was a solemn Mass of St Mungo at which the Archbishop and the Archdiocese welcomed friends and representatives to mark the origins of the Church and the City of Glasgow. In November, schools celebrated Mungo’s life and witness with this Cantata during the week of the feast of St Margaret, another notable contributer to the shaping of Scotland’s life and culture.
