The Programme for 2018

Ever wondered what the sound of a crumhorn is? What does a shawm look like? And what is the difference between a sliding trumpet and a sackbutt? This concert will answer all these questions – and more!


The Edinburgh Renaissance Band, formed in 1973, is a group of 12 Edinburgh based musicians who specialise in the performance of music from the period 1200-1600. They are well known for the wide variety of instruments they use.

Their programme is entitled The Viol Rackett Show which will be a joyous journey round the music and instruments of medieval and Renaissance Europe. Viols and racketts of course – but also cornetts, sackbuts, shawms, violin, rebec, and others of every kind. Friendly presentation from director Murray Campbell to make “early music” easily accessible.

From the Hymn to St Magnus in twelfth century Orkney to the seventeenth century canzonas and motets of Viadana and Banchieri by way of many of the major musical centres of Europe, this is a fascinating and hugely enjoyable show for the whole family.
