Bach and the Dunedin Consort have been at the heart of every one of our Lammermuir Festival programmes. This year this world-renowned ensemble celebrate their association with the Festival with four concerts including all six of the Brandenburg Concertos, as well as Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. Their residency opens with a veritable feast of Bach centred on two Brandenburgs and paired with the always exciting music of Vivaldi, whose music Bach admired so much.
'... a sensational recording [of the Brandenburg Concertos] – perhaps the best period Brandenburg set available'

The Collegiate Church of St Mary the Virgin is one of the great ecclesiastical buildings of mediaeval Scotland, founded in 1380 and known for centuries as "The Lamp of Lothian".
It was severely damaged in the 16th Century during Henry VIII's 'Rough Wooing' of Scotland, and after the Reformation only the nave was used as a parish church, with the choir and tower remaining roofless.
It was finally restored to its former glory in the 1970s, and is Scotland's longest church as well as one of its most beautiful, with a wonderfully warm, resonant acoustic.
