The worship for 19 April 2020 can be found in several videos:
- Three videos that form a service of Holy Communion
- An anthem from the choir
- Videos for members of the Young Church and their households
- A Podcast for Easter from Dr Deborah Lewer
As access to the cathedral building is restricted, this week’s worship takes the form of a house eucharist hosted by the Vice Provost from his own home, with the Very Rev Kelvin Holdsworth joining from his home. Other voices come from members of the congregation, some of whom are self-isolating at home. This Sunday’s sermon is preached by the Rev Dr Ellen Barrett. Beth Routledge reads the Gospel, Pat Bennett leads the Intercessions, and organ solos are played by Steven McIntyre on the organ at Dunblane Cathedral. Music for the Eucharist comes from the Walker family (Magnus Walker, tenor and Frikki Walker, organ). Music at communion is ‘O Filli et Filliae’ sung by Morven Bremner, soprano. The postlude is Voluntary in G (VII) by William Goodwin.
