Flickering candlelight, atmospheric architecture, and music of illumination and warmth…
Our much-loved December concerts provide an alternative to the usual musical offerings of the season, filling the beautiful surrounds of Crichton Church with evocative music from across centuries and styles.
Celebrating our 50th anniversary, this year we offer a jigsaw of significant snapshots and fragments from across its history, from pieces that have particularly resonated with audiences to some of its most significant commissions and musical moments. Between Sibelius’s Rakastava, Tavener’s Tears of The Angels, and extracts from Bach’s Goldberg Variations will come arrangements of melodies from a golden era of music, Scottish traditional tunes, and a haunting carol. Step out of the winter cold, and into a space of reflection, contemplation and inspiration.
