NYCoS at the Fringe 2016
The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace

National Youth Choir of Scotland
Sat 13 August, 7.30pm

St Giles' Cathedral, Edinburgh


Karl Jenkins’ compelling anti-war work charts the descent into, and consequences of, war and the hope for peace. Written to commemorate the new millennium, and dedicated to victims of the Kosovo War, this large-scale work is based on texts drawn from a diverse array of cultural and religious sources. The National Youth Choir of Scotland takes us on a journey of ominous marches, haunting chants and riotous cries interspersed with gentle moments of reflection, ending on a blissful note of hope. The world's most-performed work by a living composer, The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace is emotional yet thought-provoking.

 

Tickets: £12 (adult), £10 (concession), £5 (student/child)

NYCoS at the Fringe 2016
Mozart Requiem by Candlelight

National Youth Choir of Scotland
Sat 13 August, 10pm

St Giles' Cathedral, Edinburgh


Described as "the sublimest achievement that the modern period has contributed to the church", there can be few more befitting settings in which to experience the heart-wrenching beauty of Mozart Requiem than by candlelight in the historic St Giles' Cathedral. The story of its creation (as sensationalised by the Oscar-winning Amadeus) is as intriguing as this, his final masterpiece, is enigmatic. The National Youth Choir of Scotland reprises its critically-acclaimed performance of this dark yet resplendent choral work for the first time since the BBC Proms in 2014.

 

Tickets: £14 (adult), £12 (concession), £5 (student/child)
