In addition to the traditional worship, services have been devised which explored the use of alternative musical formats in worship including the use of instrumental music instead of organ voluntaries, and services celebrating the religious music of specific composers.
March 2011: The haunting sound of the clarsach, played by the accomplished young musician Clara Hyder, provided a meditative format for a Lenten service.
August 2012: The centenary of Sir Arthur Sullivan was marked by a service dedicated to his religious music. The choral music was provided by the concert party of the Edinburgh Gilbert and & Sullivan Society under their Director of Music, David Lyle.
