Online Worship for 27 December 2020 can be found in several videos.
- Three videos that form a service of Holy Communion
- A hymn (‘It came upon the Midnight Clear’)
- The Crib Service for Young Church members and their households who have not seen it yet or who would like a repeat viewing
The Provost leads this service from the Cathedral. The Vice Provost is the preacher. Michael Shanks leads some of the prayers, Taylor Driggers leads the Intercessions, and Beth Routledge reads the Gospel. Frikki Walker and Steven McIntyre play the organ. Magnus Walker sings the mass setting by Christopher Tambling, and the music at Communion (‘Balulalow’ – Peter Warlock) is sung by Morven Bremner. Steven McIntyre plays the voluntary at the end of this service, ‘Votre bonté Grand Dieu’ – Balbastre.
The three videos are also available in a single video and that video is also available on Facebook and Youtube. The Youtube video might suit those who prefer to watch on a smart TV. (The Provost and Vice Provost would like feedback on whether this is useful).
