Spem in Alium
Gregory Batsleer – Conductor
Bringing to life music spanning 500 years, from Henry Purcell through to Eric Whitacre, the SCO Chorus will perform works exploring themes of redemption, salvation and hope, concluding with Tallis’ Renaissance masterpiece Spem in Alium.
Weaving 40 individual vocal lines into a majestic tapestry of sound, Spem in Alium is one of the most glorious pieces of choral music ever written.
Join the SCO Chorus for this mesmerising performance in the evocative setting of Greyfriars Kirk during its 400th anniversary year.
