The Established Church of Scotland is, alas, due to the English Civil War and the Glorious Revolution, and before that, John Knox and the Calvinists, not the Scottish Episcopal Church, and while a minority of Scots did become Episcopalian, a majority resisted bitterly the attempts by St. Laud and others to expand Anglicanism north of the border. Thus the United Kingdom has the anomaly of two state churches, although in the case of Scotland, the Church of Scotland has been partially but not altogether disestablished (in contrast to the Church in Wales and the Church of Ireland). The Church of Scotland has also sadly become as radically liberal in places as the Scottish Episcopal Church (something I am extremely unhappy about, by the way, because of my extreme love for the Scottish traditions of Anglicanism and the Scottish heritage of the Episcopal Church and its Continuing Anglican successors; also the 1929 BCP is particularly exquisite and they aren’t really using it). But, what I want to understand is how the Church of Scotland and the Church of England are “interfaced” in the case of services to the English monarch, for example. Her Majesty goes to church every Sunday at Balmoral; what are these and other royal services like in Scotland and how would they differ from equivalent English services? We all see the small role the Moderator played at the Coronation of Her Majesty in 1953 (Long may she reign), by presenting the Queen with a Bible. But what else is there? Does the royal family take communion or allow its children to be baptized in both churches? Can an Anglican in Scotland or a Scotsman in England join without repercussions a congregation of the other State Church? And what about the worship of the Royal Family while in Wales or Northern Ireland? Would they use the disestablished Anglican churches therein? Or instead rely on the ministrations of their own Chaplains? Or make sure to return to England or Scotland before Sunday? ~ It is not just the overlapping worship of the Royals I am interested in. While listening to archived recordings of BBC Radio 3’s Choral Evensong from the Archive of Recorded Church Music on YouTube, I found an excellent one from Scotland called Paisley Abbey. It was not labelled Choral Vespers, which is what the Beeb calls Choral Evensong when it is not Anglican. However it turns out the service I heard, which was not noticeably different, and which indeed sounded exactly the same as, Anglican evensong, aside from the accents, was coming from a Church of Scotland parish. So is there some history of Choral Evensong in the Church of Scotland, and does this still happen? There was a high-church pro-liturgical movement in the 19th century Kirk, indeed two such movements, Mercersberg Theology among Presbyterian and continental Calvinists in the US, and the Scottish Church Society and the related Church Service Society in the UK. And there were people who identified as “Scoto-Catholics”, which seems a strange concept, but then again when I first met ultra high church Lutherans from the LCMS I was also bewildered. But attempts to penetrate the fog surrounding historic liturgical practices of the Church of Scotland in the 20th century that would be equivalent to high church Anglicanism have been unsuccessful; rather one runs into the unhelpful Book of Common Order, and the Euchologion of the 19th century, and the services authored by Knox, Calvin and Bucer in the 16th century (in the book Liturgies of the Western Church, but details on what we might call Scottish high church parish life remain elusive. The input of @PDL and other British members on this thread would be greatly appreciated.
