Angels and Dragons
Today is the feast of St Michael and All Angels, otherwise known as Michaelmas.
In the Anglican tradition, the angels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael are celebrated on this day. In some case Uriel (Auriel) is also included. At St Mary’s Cathedral in Glasgow the festival was kept in magnificent style.
The evening Eucharist service used Mozart’s Spatsenmesse (Sparrow Mass) sung by the choir, including the trebles, under the direction of Frikki Walker, with Geoff Woollatt on organ and piano. Familiar hymns were sung, although not usually associated with this time of year.
All in all a wonderful service, and rounded off with refreshments allowing the congregation to mingle and discuss the service (and other issues of the day).
