Music at the Cathedral

The Schola Cantorum sings weekly at the 12pm Sunday Mass, bringing together eight voices to sing sacred music to the highest standards. The ensemble sings the full breadth of sacred art music, from plainchant and Renaissance polyphony to newly composed works. The ensemble aims to represent excellence in Roman Catholic music-making both at St Mary’s Cathedral, in the Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh, and in the Roman Catholic Church in Scotland more generally.
