Medieval music in Scotland


Iuchair present an extremely rare chance to hear the otherworldly medieval music of the 13th-century composer Pérotin live, and to discover how the music made its way to Scotland from Paris.This concert will present an alternative picture of the enigmatic Pérotin, revealing him to be more of a convenient name to attach to a centuries-old tradition of improvised music, rather than being a singular composer that created an entire repertory. We will be performing some of the more famous pieces in the repertory, such as Viderunt Omnes and Sederunt Principes, but also little-known and rarely performed pieces such as a two-part setting of Beata Viscera and the Scottish settings for St Andrew: Vir Iste / Vir Perfecte.
