Music, Liturgy, and the Making of Medieval Scotland

Today, Scotland’s patron saint, Andrew the Apostle, anchors Scottish national identity in an annual holiday on his feast day. But in the century leading up to the Scottish declaration of independence, the 1320 Declaration of Arbroath, Saint Andrew’s significance expanded from that of a local saint to become the central figure in the foundation of Christianized Scotland. This lecture will feature the performance of medieval liturgical music made at the Cathedral of St Andrews to celebrate Saint Andrew’s relics, showing how liturgical music shaped history.  The music will be performed by renowned counter-tenor, Daniel Cabena.

Life during the pandemic has been challenging for everyone. During this period, the harsh realities of oppression and racism were cruelly unveiled infront of our eyes. The question of how we move forward is often asked, and difficult to answer.
