Robert Murray launches our Radio 3 lunchtime series with Schumann’s most popular song cycle, in which Heine’s poems explore the pain as well as the joy of love, along with Britten’s magisterial setting of nine of Donne’s great sonnets. Dark and powerful, these songs chart the deepest of emotional waters.

Murray’s intelligence shines through… a beguiling performance.


Holy Trinity Church, Haddington

Holy Trinity stands on the site of a Franciscan friary (the original ‘Lamp of Lothian’ before that title passed to St Mary’s Church nearby) which was built here in the 13th Century. The friary was demolished in 1572, and almost two centuries later, in 1769, work was begun on a ‘qualified’ Anglican chapel which was finally consecrated as Holy Trinity in 1815. The present chancel was added and the interior remodelled in an attractive neo-Byzantine style in 1930.
