The worship for Easter Day can be found in several videos:
- The Exsultet – Sung by the Vice Provost – audio only
- Three videos that form a service of Holy Communion
- An anthem from the choir
- Videos for members of the Young Church and their households including an animation of Mary Magdelene’s experience of the first Easter.
- A video for the young choristers teaching them a Hallelujah
The service is led by the Provost, the Very Rev Kelvin Holdsworth who is also the preacher today. Other voices come from members of the congregation, some of whom are self-isolating at home. The Rev Canon Oliver Brewer-Lennon reads the Gospel, Lisa Curtice leads the Intercessions, and organ solos are played by Steven McIntyre on the organ at Dunblane Cathedral. Music for the Eucharist comes from the Inns family. Music at communion is The Call by Ralph Vaughan Williams sung by Magnus Walker and accompanied by Frikki Walker. The postlude is Praeludium in C (BuxWV 137) – D. Buxtehude.
As access to the cathedral building is restricted, this week’s worship takes the form of a house eucharist hosted by the Provost from his own home. As the paschal candle was delivered to the home of one of the sacristans, Sue Champion, the service will begin with Sue lighting the candle in her home for the congregation.
