With award-winning vocal ensemble I Fagiolini
As winter thickens and darkness descends, let this be our shining gift to you: a smorgasboard of glittering
Renaissance, Baroque, 20th- and 21 century jewels to ring and resonate through the night.
Our much-loved advent tour pairs glowing candles and atmospheric venues with music of hidden depths, spiritual
solace, meditative reflection and warm midwinter comfort. Always delivering a few extra gifts, this year we bring
you the dynamic, inimitable vocal ensemble I Fagiolini, with seven singers joining us for a mesmerising evening of sound and light.
- ‘Concerts by Candlelight’ is our annual advent / festive / Christmas concert series, which we actively
promote as an alternative to the usual festive offerings of carol concerts and Christmas-themed pieces.
- It takes place in the beautiful surroundings of St Machar’s Cathedral, with the musicians playing by
the light of candles.
- This year we’re joined by a brilliant vocal ensemble who will have performed at the Edinburgh Fringe
in August 2017.
- The music performed will be a mix of early and Baroque music, and contemporary works. All will
focus on creating a reflective, spiritual and meditative atmosphere.
- These concerts tend to sell out (or very close to capacity) every year so we recommend that people
book in advance.
