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 the known) led by Douglas and Hazel Gifford, introduced generations of students and staff to the glories of Renaissance choral music. It still exists under its new name of the University of St Andrews Renaissance Singers, now directed by Gillian Craig, and 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.

Venue: St Salvator’s Chapel, North Street

Running Time: 70 minutes
