'Remember me, my Deir'

Following their acclaimed performance of 16th-century Scottish Church Music at the 2016 Nairn Book and Arts Festival, The Musick Fyne Soloists directed by D James Ross return to the United Reformed Church in Nairn with a programme of courtly French love chansons and Scottish partsongs interspersed with elegant instrumental Pavanes and Galliards from the Golden Age of Mary, Queen of Scots. The singers are joined on this occasion by members of the instrumental consort, Coronach, playing a galaxy of Renaissance instruments including recorders, chalumeau, harps, viols, spinet and lute.

Don’t miss this exciting evocation of one of the most elegant and colourful periods of European history!
