Lay a Garland

Saturday, March 28, 2020


Saturday 28th March at 7.30pm

St Mary's Cathedral, Palmerston Place


The Edinburgh Singers present an evening of evocative a cappella choral music spanning four centuries. 

The programme centres around Howells' haunting Requiem and features iconic works by Lotti, Verdi, Mendelssohn, and Stanford. The choir continues its celebration of the ethereal works of Ešenvalds with The Heavens' Flock, and the concert takes its title from Pearsall's beloved setting of the poem Lay a Garland.

The concert will be performed in the atmospheric St Mary's Cathedral, providing a rich acoustic for these choral masterpieces.
