A Nativity Play in Glasgow Cathedral

The Rev D S McGillivray, MA, Glasgow

Duncan S. MacGillivray describes a nativity play presented the previous Christmas in the Cathedral, after four years in Govan Old Parish Church, for which it had been devised.  In his judgement  it had “the merit….of containing no spoken word (save) the intermittent reading of the Gospel record, and carols sung by a screened choir”.   An indication of its effect on participants and audiences is added.   2 illustrations.
