Canticles and Songs of Praise: Study and Sing

  • Saturday 11 May 2024, 9.30 am – 5.30 pm
  • Laidlaw Music Centre, Queen’s Terrace, St Andrews, Fife, KY16 9QF

‘Canticles’ or scriptural hymns appear in the Bible distinct from the Book of Psalms, particularly in contexts of praise and celebration. 

Join staff from St Andrews University’s Sacred Music programme to explore some of these texts, using a range of different musical settings from the 16th century to the present day.

Adult singers of all levels of experience are welcome. 

At the end of the day, all who wish are welcome to join us as we sing and pray together using this material in St Andrew’s Episcopal Church, adjacent to the Laidlaw Music Centre.

This event follows last year’s highly successful RSCM: Sing the Psalms Day

Dunblane Summer School

  • Monday 22nd to Thursday 25th July
  • Dunblane Cathedral
