Lovers of Monteverdi’s sacred music will want to plunge into the turbulent waters of his secular music in this programme.

This gorgeous programme offers a ravishing selection of madrigals about love, loss and war from his 6th, 7th and 8th Books – ardent, vivid music evoking the world of Monteverdi’s great operas in microcosm.  The solo instrumental work and the ensemble singing at this concert are to die for.

A programme brought to life in a vivid performance from the singers and instrumentalists of the Dunedin Consort

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.
