Church of the Holy Rude

Our return visit to Linlithgow was very enjoyable, and the next time we sing is on Saturday 4th March when at 4pm we will sing Choral Evensong in the Church of the Holy Rude in Stirling, a few yards from Stirling castle.

Introit: Geistliches Lied (Johannes Brahms)
Responses: John Bertalot
Psalm: 22 & 23 (chants: Matthew Camidge, Henry Walford Davies)
Canticles: Magnificat & Nunc Dimittis in b minor (Hugh Blair)
Anthem: Cast me not away from Thy presence (Samuel Sebastian Wesley)

Dating from the 15th century, the Church of the Holy Rude is the only church apart from Westminster Abbey still in active use that has hosted a coronation, when the infant King James VI (who was later also James I of England) was crowned there on 29th July 1567.
