Event summary

Rosslyn Chapel, Midlothian

Event details

Experience and enjoy Heriot-Watt's Chamber Choir in this performance of Masterworks at Rosslyn Chapel.

Our programme is a celebration of music from Europe, very old and new! Above all, at the back of my mind choosing these songs, was the fact that we were going to be performing in the amazing, quite unique acoustic at Rosslyn Chapel.

‘Excelsior per cantum’ is the Heriot-Watt University chamber choir that performs music from all corners of the globe from the 14th century right through to music being written now. EPC has two annual concerts at Rosslyn Chapel, performing music reflecting the magnificent but intimate beauty that is Rosslyn Chapel. This group also performs in St. Giles Cathedral, Edinburgh; at the Edinburgh Universities Remembrance Service at the Playfair Library; and at other internal University events and further afield.
