Greyfriars Kirk

Light And Gold - A programme of festive and reflective music including:  
Bruckner Motets: Ave Maria, Virga Jesse
Eccard Ich steh an deine Krippen hier; Übers Gebirg Maria geht
Mendelssohn Frohlocket, ihr Völker auf Erden
Pärt Magnificat
Whitacre Lux Aurumque
Carols by Holst, Britten, Parry
Music for solo cello by JS Bach

SCO Chorus; Gregory Batsleer: conductor; Philip Higham: cello

Join the SCO Chorus for a seasonal journey from the joyful Renaissance to the lyrical expressiveness of today's music by Pärt and Whitacre. Whitacre’s Lux Aurumque (Light and Gold) is extraordinarily lush, and creates a slowly evolving wash of colours and light through the lyrics “Light, warm and heavy as pure gold, and the angels sing softly to the newborn babe.”
