65th Anniversary Celebrations begin tonight!
To mark the occasion of the 65th anniversary of the St Andrews Renaissance Singers (originally the Renaissance Group) we have produced four short films premiering tonight at 6pm and released at 6pm each day from Thursday 24th-Sunday 27th September, 2020 via the following links:
The programme is:
Thursday 24th: A History of the Renaissance Singers (features interviews, historic recordings, archive footage, and images)
Friday 25th: Robert Carver: Scottish Renaissance Master (recounting the Renaissance Group’s early championing of Carver’s music with interviews and historic live and studio recordings)
Saturday 26th: Why Renaissance Music? Members past and present of the Renaissance Singers tell of their passion for Renaissance Music
Sunday 27th: The Student Experience, concluding with a virtual performance of Palestrina’s Alma Redemptoris Mater
We hope that you will enjoy watching them – we have tried to give a view of the very special place that the choir has held for generations of singers and continues to do so to this day…
