The Choir

Great church buildings have always been associated with great music, and choral music in particular. Most famous perhaps is the Choir of King's College, Cambridge, seen and heard by millions at their annual carol service, although, in fact, similar choirs exist in cathedrals and churches up and down the land, striving to match inspirational architecture with inspirational singing.

Dunblane Cathedral Choir is a busy, lively group consisting of a wide cross section of the congregation and also covering a wide age range. Its main function is to lead the praise at a Sunday morning service, singing an introit, an anthem and sometimes also an offertory. We often sing at weddings if requested, and occasionally give concerts of both sacred and secular music.

There is a treble choir and an adult choir. The treble choir has both boys and girls aged 7 to 14. They rehearse in the Cathedral Halls each Monday at 4.45pm until 6.00pm, and each Thursday from 6.45pm until 8.15pm. The adult choir joins them on Thursdays and rehearses in the Cathedral Halls from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.

Sunday School for the treble choir is held every Sunday morning and there is also a Bible Class for older members. The Treble choir Sunday School meets briefly at 9.25am before going to the Sunday School, and then attend the main service at 10.30am.

The choir practices are not held during the summer school holidays (end of June - mid-August) and during this time the choir sing from their repertoire, depending on availability of choir members during the holiday season. 

For more information about the Choir contact the Organist and Choirmaster.
