with Angus Smith of the Orlando Consort

We will be meeting at Broughton St Mary’s in Bellevue Crescent, Edinburgh and the schedule for the day will be as follows –

09.30 – 10.00     Registration
10.15 – 11.30     Session 1
11.30 – 11.45     Break
11.45 – 13.00     Session 2

Angus has prepared an interesting programme of both new and unfamiliar repertoire from Byrd, Dunstaple, Parsons and others, with Byrd featuring prominently. This will include Byrd’s Libera me, Domine, de morte aeterna, Dunstaple’s Descendi in ortum meum and Taverner’s Alleluya V: Veni Electa. He hopes to demonstrate how the very earliest music from the 11th to the 15th centuries influenced what came later, and I’m sure we will all have a lovely day.

We will have bound copies of the music for you to take away on the day, and we will have them available for advance collection at our choir session in St Michael’s and All Saints on February 12th. Angus is not expecting everybody to look at the music before the day, but we are simply making it available in case people would like to have advance notice.

The fees for the day are as follows –

Half day: £22 EMFS members; £25 non-members
Full day: £40 EMFS members; £45 non-members
Students/Low Income £10

There are also some free places for students, and if anyone would like to enquire further about this then please contact me directly at

Like all events, we are dependent on the continued relaxation of Covid restrictions, and will take our advice and instruction from the Scottish Government. I would ask you all to take a Lateral Flow Test on the day, and if it is positive then of course please do not attend.

If you have any queries please contact me (Margaret West) on and I hope as many of you as possible can come. It really should be a fabulous day!
