Event Details

St Andrews Voices is delighted to host this reunion celebrating many decades of local choral music-making. Dating back to 1955, The Renaissance Group (as it was then known) led by Douglas and Hazel Gifford, introduced generations of students and staff to the glories of Renaissance choral music. Now the University of St Andrews Renaissance Singers, directed by Gillian Craig, this performance marks a coming-together of choir past and present. In a programme inspired by ‘Music of the Heavens’, the two choirs will perform together, and separately, music by Monteverdi, Palestrina, Victoria, Byrd, Taverner, and Philip Stopford – whose Ave Maris Stella was commissioned by St Andrews Voices in 2015.

Tickets available from the Byre Box Office.
