Take a break from the festive flurry with an evening of light, music and shimmering suspense…

Enjoy sounds of radiance and beauty in atmospheric churches and cathedrals, with musicians playing by the warm light of candles.

Experience double the sound as SE musicians are joined by nine promising musicians from the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland (NYOS).

Discover the fragile beauty of Dobrinka Tabakova’s Cello Concerto, played by the extremely gifted international soloist David Cohen.

Pause to appreciate the enduring popularity of two of Vaughan Williams’ most popular works – his immense Thomas Tallis Fantasia, and the quietly sublime The Lark Ascending.
