Join the SCO Chorus for a festive and reflective mix of ancient and contemporary music, exploring symbolism associated with the Virgin Mother, Mary. The programme includes Sally Beamish’s In the Stillness, which beautifully captures the hushed rapture of a small parish church in a snowbound landscape and Cecilia McDowell’s intimate Ave Regina. There’s also music by Sweelinck, Kenneth Leighton and Sir James MacMillan as well as traditional Christmas carols. Be sure to book early!
