The Choir of St Mary’s Cathedral, Glasgow, is one of Scotland’s finest church choirs, and consists of a pool of about 40 singers, aged from eight years old, who give of their time and talent on a voluntary basis, singing a huge variety of music to a professional standard. The choir sings two services every Sunday, as well as on special days, and is regularly featured on radio and television. It has often featured on Daily Service and Morning Worship on Radio 4, Radio 2’s Sunday Half-Hour, and on special programmes on Radio 2, Radio 4, the BBC World Service and Radio Scotland. They have also appeared many times on BBC TV’s Songs of Praise, most recently on a series of three programmes in the summer of 2010.

RSCM - CMQ (June 2011)
Gentle melodies abound on this recording: if you love a good tune, this is a disc for you! ..... St Mary's Cathedral Choir is voluntary and mixed. They sing to an impressively high standard and interpret convincingly music composed in a range of styles.

CHOIR & ORGAN (Jul/Aug 2011)
... The choir sings them all with skill, infectious pleasure and a remarkable blending of tone. MacMillan the local man, of course - supplies a model of how to write singable new music for the Church without jeopardising quality. There's a lovely chorus [track], whose provenance is the Salvation Army, by June Collin, and there's evidence - if you're interested - of what happens when girls take over the top line; you get a distinctively beautiful but distinctively different sound.
