Cairneyhill organist remembered

DUNDEE EVENING TELEGRAPH SATURDAY 5 MARCH 1949

PRECENTOR TAUGHT HIM

Mr David Peggie, formerly of Inverkeithing and now of Falkland, is to be honoured by Dunfermline and Kinross Presbytery in recognition of his jubilee as organist and choirmaster.

Mr Peggie had his first music lessons from one of the old-time precentors at Falkland. At 18 he became the first organist of the Free Church of Falkland which had just been presented with an organ by Andrew Carnegie.

For six years Mr Peggie was organist at Kingskettle and later at Cairneyhill. During the first World War he was organist and librarian in a large hospital in France and later was appointed organist at Torryburn Parish Church. Latterly he has been at Dalgety Church.

The Presbytery are hoping to arrange for the presentation of a psalter and hymn book to Mr Peggie at their next monthly meeting.
