The Trials of Love

February 25 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Greyfriars Kirk, Greyfriars Place
Edinburgh, EH1 2QQ United Kingdom
£5 – £20

Two tales of love — both tragedies in their own ways — are brought together in this coupling of baroque cantatas. From a woman so lovestruck that she can only find solace in nature, as in Bella madre de’ fiori, to the tragic tale of Daphne, who tries and fails to resist Apollo’s advances and is transformed into a laurel tree, her branches watered forever by his tears. These extraordinary tales of passion and penitence are rendered by Handel and…

Matthew Passion

April 9 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral, Edinburgh, Palmerston Place
Edinburgh, EH12 5AW United Kingdom
£5 – £25

Described as ‘the most sought-after evangelist of his generation’, Nicholas Mulroy has been central to our annual Matthew Passion performances for more than a decade. This year, in a Dunedin Consort first, he takes the helm as director, combining his unparalleled gift for storytelling with a musicality that is touching and inspiring in equal measure. Performed in Dunedin Consort’s celebrated one-to-a-part interpretation, Bach’s masterpiece is at its most powerful — a glorious work of optimism, hope, togetherness and salvation.

A Lover’s Discourse

May 31 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Assembly Roxy, 2 Roxburgh Place
Edinburgh, EH8 9SU United Kingdom
£5 – £20

In love, as in music, we find ourselves in a multitude of hazy, transcendental states, neither here nor there. ‘We are enchanted, bewitched: we are in the realm of sleep, without sleeping; we are within the voluptuous infantilism of sleepiness: this is the moment for telling stories.’ So says Roland Barthes in his sweeping and ecstatic examination of human love, A Lover’s Discourse. Join us for a unique and transformative experience, as we pair Barthes’ vivid recitations with madrigals by…

Acis & Galatea

June 23 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Queen’s Hall, 85 - 89 Clerk Street
Edinburgh, EH8 9JG United Kingdom
£5 – £25

rLove, jealousy, tragedy and transfiguration — Acis & Galatea has it all. So it is no surprise that Handel’s ‘little opera’, as he called it, was his most popular stage work during his lifetime. It was his first major setting of a substantial English text and would become the prototype for the English oratorio, which earned Handel such fame in the latter part of his career. Performed by Dunedin Consort in the original ‘Cannons’ version with one-per-part choruses — which Gramophone…
