Dunkeld Cathedral Perthshire

Wedding Music

The Organ was built by Bevington of London in 1908 and stands centrally in the West gallery. It has two manuals, pedals and sixteen stops. The instrument has been modified several times, most recently by Sandy Edmonstone of Perth in 1988 and 2002.

The Choir, a volunteer group from the parish, sings from the organ gallery. Each Sunday, as well as leading the hymns, the choir sings an introit, anthem and recessional. A selection of this repertoire is included in a CD entitled "The Bells, Choir and Organ of Dunked Cathedral.". The CD, costing £10, can be purchased by contacting the Session Clerk.

The lists of hymns, readings and organ music are suggestions and are not intended to restrict your choice.
