Seeds of Venice – Edinburgh International Festival

August 5 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Booking Tel 01316682019

Edinburgh’s own Dunedin Consort, under scholar and charismatic director John Butt, is fast becoming one of the UK’s most respected early music groups, renowned for its vivid, passionate performances that crackle with energy. They bring a sense of enormous excitement to the launch of the 2017 Queen’s Hall concerts – with the modern-day premiere of a recently rediscovered work by Claudio Monteverdi and Heinrich Schütz.

Booking Tel 01316682019

“If music has the power to direct our entire existence towards nobleness, this music is great. Bach has achieved this.” Is there a piece in the entire Western musical canon that so fully embodies this sentiment? The B Minor Mass began its life as a job application, but was later assembled towards the end of Bach’s life as a statement of faith: in God, of course, but just as much in music: to offer healing, unity and promise.
