Tenebrae at Lammermuir Festival

Posted on 2nd July 2014

This autumn, for the first time, Tenebrae will be heading to Scotland to take part in the Lammermuir Festival from September 16th-18th 2014. With a festival programme ranging from a symphony orchestra to a solo violin, Lammermuir invites visitors to discover and share beautiful music set amidst the bewitching landscape of East Lothian.

To celebrate their first year as part of the festival, Tenebrae will bring three different concerts to Lammermuir. On Tuesday 16th September, Tenebrae Consort will perform a programme of Mediæval Chant and Tallis Lamentations in the fitting acoustic of Whitekirk’s mediæval parish church.

The following evening, the full Tenebrae ensemble will perform a concert of Russian Treasures, featuring works by Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky in the captivating setting of St. Mary’s Church, Haddington.

Finally, on Thursday 18th September, Tenebrae Consort will journey to the magnificent 18th century historic Gilmerton House, near Athlestaneford, to present madrigals by Byrd and Weelkes in a two part concert of Late Renaissance Music. Audiences will delight in the sounds of both choral and keyboard music on this evening, with John Kitchen performing a selection of music for harpsichord in the neighbouring oak-panelled Music Room.
