When: Friday 17th November 10.00 – 16.00.
Where: Riddle’s Court, 322 Lawnmarket, Edinburgh, EH1 2PG.
Fee: £30 / £25 concession (lunch included).
In 1598, Riddle’s Court was the scene of a diplomatic banquet attended by James VI and Anne of Denmark. Through a lens of ritual, ceremony and patronage this study day explores the relationship music and performance would have played during this royal visit. Hear from top academics who shed light on the backdrop to such an event. Medieval Music ensemble ‘Gaita’ will give us a flavour of music performed in the late medieval era and in partnership with the historic instrument collection at St Cecilia’s Hall, Sarah Deters will guide us through the University of Edinburgh’s formidable collection of renaissance instruments housed in the fully restored eighteenth century concert venue.
