    About Strathclyde University Chamber Choir

    Formed in 1980 under the direction of Alan Tavener, and comprising students and staff from Strathclyde University, as well as singers from the wider community in the West of Scotland, the Strathclyde University Chamber Choir has a repertoire ranging from plainsong and renaissance music to 20th century and contemporary pieces. In addition to regular Easter holiday visits to all the great northern English cathedrals, the choir sings occasional services in Glasgow and its environs, and gives two or three concerts a year, as well as undertaking various fundraising events. The choir has championed the work of several young composers, including Toby Young, Alan Craig and Emily Crossland, and has had a long-standing relationship with Sir James MacMillan, for whose son’s wedding in 2018 it was honoured to provide the music. It has also been broadcast on Radios 3, 4 and 2. While in Newcastle the choir will be giving an informal concert to young patients at the Great North Children’s Hospital.

  3. Faith Development: Canons in Conversation

    Comments Off on Faith Development: Canons in Conversation

    For the last five years, we have offered a series of Lent talks under the overall heading of ‘Inspiring…’ (Anglicans, Places, Texts, Images and Words).

    This year, we would like to offer something a little different.

    On Thursdays 21st March (the Dean), 4th April (Canon Jean Skinner) and 11th April (Canon Steven Harvey), each of us will be interviewed by a colleague about our faith development – how our journey started, what has encouraged us, what has challenged us, and what has changed in our understanding and practice as we have travelled as Christians and as priests.

    The format will be the same on each occasion.

    There will be a Eucharist in St George’s Chapel at 11.30am; the conversation will begin at 12.15pm; and this will be followed by discussion over coffee and biscuits (although people are very welcome to bring a packed lunch).

    All are welcome.
