Notice to appoint Nominating Committee

The following notice was read out at yesterday’s service (Sunday 23/6/24) and will also be read next Sunday:

Notice is hereby given that a meeting of this congregation of the Dornoch Firth Church of Scotland will be held in Dornoch Cathedral on Sunday July 7th at the close of morning worship for the purpose of appointing a Nominating Committee. The service will commence at 11am as usual.
At that meeting, the congregation shall be invited to elect 11-13 people, who are on the Electoral Roll of this congregation of Dornoch Firth Church of Scotland to serve on the Nominating Committee. If you wish to propose anyone to serve on the Committee you may do so at the meeting providing the person has indicated a willingness to serve. Any candidate must have a seconder.
The first meeting of the Nominating Committee is scheduled to take place on Tuesday 9th July at 7:00 pm in the West Church Hall.

The task of the Nominating Committee will be to take responsibility for all the administration, researching of applications, listening to possible candidates whilst preaching and then to nominate one person to this congregation of Dornoch Firth Church of Scotland to be the new minister.

I encourage all members and adherents on the Electoral Roll to attend.

CONCERT: Restoring Scaramella – The Hortus Choir

On Friday, 21st June at 7.30pm in Dornoch Cathedral.  Doors open at 7pm:  ALL WELCOME

Dornoch Cathedral is the venue for a most special musical performance of Obrecht’s Scaramella mass, written in the late 15th century, by the Hortus Choir. Only two of the four voice parts survives intact, the other two having been lost.
However, composer and musicologist Fabrice Fitch, drawing on his extensive knowledge of the music of the time, has painstakingly reconstructed the mass although not precisely as Obrecht originally wrote.
Hortus is a new choir singing one voice per part and specialising in early music. We are very proud to present in this programme the first time that this mass has been heard in the UK for at least 525 years (or possibly ever!).
