The first of Mozart’s ‘Haydn Quartets’ is one of his most joyful musical utterances and here in Lucia di Lammermoor country it’s followed by a rare opportunity to hear a charming quartet by the opera’s composer Gaetano Donizetti. The programme ends with one of Haydn’s magisterial Opus 76 quartets showing his talent at its richest and most mature.

Quatuor Mosaïques made a chamber music evening in the concert hall into a breathtaking experience: art became emotion, emotion became art. Storytellers like the Quatuor Mosaïques were listened to with dedication.

Chalmers Memorial Church, Port Seton

Construction began on Chalmers Memorial Church (originally a United Free Church, now Church of Scotland) in 1904 on land purchased from the Earl of Wemyss, to a design by the Scottish architect Sydney Mitchell.

The church is one of several in Scotland named after Dr Thomas Chalmers, one of the leaders of the 'Disruption' of the Scottish church in 1843.

This was the great schism caused by a dispute over the church's relationship with the state, and Chalmers was the first moderator of the breakaway group that became the Free Church. The foundation stone was laid by his grand-daughter and services began on April 1, 1905.

The A-listed church building with its many Arts and Crafts features has remained virtually unchanged since that day. Its carved timbers as well and unique, elaborate stencil work reflect the character of the fishing village of Port Seton and the history of the church.

The windows are by Margaret Chilton and Marjorie Kemp, two distinguished stained glass artists, committed to the principles of the Arts and Crafts movement, who met at the Glasgow School of Art and set up a studio in Edinburgh together in 1922.
