The Edinburgh Singers present a programme of choral music centred around the theme of love spanning hundreds of years. We start with early Scottish composer David Peebles and finish with a work from Scotland's most celebrated living composer, James MacMillan's beautiful setting of Scottish text, The Gallant Weaver.

Making up the rest of the programme is music of English tradition from Roxanna Panufnik and Bob Chilcott, as well as music from around world by Felix Mendelssohn, Gustav Holst and our continuing celebration of the ethereal works of Ēriks Ešenvalds.
