Gaita: A Series of Unfortunate Events – A Musical History of Medieval Scottish Kings
November 5 @ 19:30 - 20:45| £10.00 – £15.00
The story of the medieval Scottish Kings, from the dynasty founded by Malcolm Canmore to the Wars of Independence, is a series of brief periods of stability and hope punctuated by disastrous calamity. Beset by troubles from the English, the Norwegians, the Papacy and more often than not, their own nobility, these kings rarely died peacefully.
This programme is a brief history of the Scottish Kings, Courts and Musicians from the 12th to the 14th centuries. It includes music written in Scotland (St Andrews Music Book, Inchcolm Antiphoner), music showing other’s view of Scotland, and other contemporary sources, all interspersed with a narrative overview of this fascinating period of Scottish history.
