St Andrew’s Vespers
St Andrew’s Day in Glasgow will be marked by church services and Masses,
by lunches and suppers and a variety of social events – perhaps signs of a renewed
interest in St Andrew and his long association with Scotland and the Scots. Glasgow
Churches Together are holding a special ecumenical Vespers at 7.00 on Wednesday
in St Andrew’s Cathedral, Clyde Street, Glasgow.
Church representatives will be joined by those of the city including the Leader
of the Council, Gordon Matheson. Music will be led by the St Mungo Singers,
with Des McLean and the Brass Ensemble from St Andrew’s Secondary School, and
with instrumentalists Clare, John, Carissa and Jane. The music will cover a wide range of style
from medieval hymn, to Vaughan-Williams’ setting of the Old 100th, to 17th century polyphony,
modern responsorial psalms and Canticles and the singing of the ecumenical version of The Lord’s Prayer,
and the short homily will be given by the Moderator of Glasgow Presbytery.
The prizewinning St Andrew’s Day Bookmark will be made available at the service.
All are welcome and the service will be followed by hospitality at St Andrew’s Cathedral.
