In this beautiful programme The Marian Consort explore music of mourning and supplication from Renaissance Portugal alongside comparable settings from the English church.

Late 16th century Habsburg Portugal was a kingdom without a king, its people governed by a foreign power. Settings of biblical texts of lamentation gave life to a rich expression of covert political commentary as well as to religious feeling.

The Marian Consort give sublimely refined, spacious and impeccably tuned performances.

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.
