St Andrew's Cathedral, Dundee2018 Triennial Festival in St Andrew's RC Cathedral, Dundee

Join hundreds of other singers including RSCM Scottish Voices and the members of the Dunkeld Diocesan Choir, as we gather for our glorious, three-yearly, festival of praise.

This year, it will be held in St Andrew’s RC Cathedral in Dundee and will be on Saturday 2 June 2018.

This is an exciting new venue for RSCM Scotland and we can already report wonderful co-operation from the cathedral.

Bishop Stephen Robson of the Diocese of Dunkeld will preside and preach, and Father Kevin Golden, priest at the cathedral, will also take part. Both the Diocesan Choir and Scottish Voices will be singing; Matthew Beetschen will be the Musical Director.

Learning the music

There will be regional rehearsals to help you learn the music. All of the music will be accessible, with some you can take back to your local church and other music only possible on this kind of occasion! A local rehearsal schedule will be published shortly.

We had a preliminary look at this music at our Come and Sing/AGM in February. If you would like to order multiple copies of the music, please contact Nicola Lawrence (triennial(at) as soon as possible to discuss your requirements.

Other RSCM Scotland events will be held before the Triennial and there will be opportunity to acquire (and pay for) multiple copies at these events, provided that they are ordered in advance.
