Music through the ages

In this unique concert a rich tapestry of history, music, theatre and visual art combine together to reveal the events that shaped this nation and impacted the world. We begin our journey with Columba and Cuthbert in the sixth and seventh centuries, and pass through the Middle Ages with Queen Margaret and her son, King David, and then onto John Knox, the Covenanters, the Enlightenment and nineteenth-century revival movements here. We conclude with the present day. Each era is reflected by actors in period costumes and by the music of those times.

Concerts so far have taken place in St Columba’s Free Church, Bellevue Chapel and the Canongate Kirk (the Royal Kirk).
