The Festival’s partnership with John Butt and his magnificent Dunedin Consort continues with two great works by Mozart framing a scintillating concerto by CPE Bach. Mozart’s Requiem is one of his best-known works – but expect the Dunedins to bring fascinating new insights, as always, to their interpretation of this much-loved classic.

“Butt and his forces yield a dramatic, exactingly nuanced, profoundly considered reading… it’s nothing short of a revelation”
BBC Music Magazine

Running time 2 hours

St. Mary’s Parish Church, Haddington

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.
