Schubert’s Octet is one of the best loved of all pieces of chamber music. Cast on a grand scale in six movements it is also a work of the most sublime genius – in turn profound and playful, virtuosic and lyrical. Howells’s Rhapsodic Quintet for clarinet and strings was composed just after the Great War and is one of his finest works, infused, like the music of Schubert, with songful melody.

BBC Radio 3

'The ensemble beautifully articulated each and every phrase in this impeccable performance.'

Scotland on Sunday

'One of the most innovative and thrilling ensembles in Europe.'

Dirleton Kirk, Dirleton

Dirleton is one of the most picturesque of East Lothian's many beautiful villages, and its church, Dirleton Kirk, dedicated to St Andrew, is a real gem.

Built in 1612 to replace the parish church along the coast at Gullane which was continually being inundated by sand, this long, low-eaved church with its square, gothic-topped tower is built of warm pink sandstone.

Its striking Archerfield Aisle (1664) is Scotland's earliest example of neo-classical architecture. Inside, the mellow light filters through some especially fine stained glass.
