Here we are on a Sunday morning, rehearsing for the 10.30 service in St Mary’s Cathedral, Palmerston Place.  Our Wednesday rehearsals take place in the adjacent Song School dominated by the fine murals painted by Phoebe Traquair.  The Cathedral is the centre of our music-making; we learn much of our music for the services in this building. St Mary’s Cathedral is the largest church building in Scotland, and the only church in Scotland to maintain daily music.
