Visiting Choirs

We are always delighted to welcome visiting choirs, especially during July and the weeks at the beginning and end of August, when our own Cathedral Choir takes its summer break. There are several other possible times during the year when our Choir is not in residence, and Saturday throughout the year is also open to visiting choirs who would like to sing Choral Evensong. If you are interested in visiting us to sing a service, please contact the Cathedral Office for possible dates. Call us on +44 (0) 131 225 6293 or e-mail:

The basic pattern of our weekly sung services is as follows:


10.30am Choral Eucharist – with a choral mass setting and motet

3.30pm Choral Evensong – with introit, responses, psalm(s), canticles, and anthem


5.30pm Choral Evensong (Monday-Wednesday, Friday) – sung responses, psalms, canticles and an anthem

5.30pm Choral Eucharist (Thursday) – with a choral mass setting and a motet
