Squaire Mile Consort of Viols

Stirling Castle,

Rosie Sweetnam (soprano) and The Squair Mile Consort of Viols will entertain you with music spanning the reigns of James IV, James V, Mary Queen of Scots, and the early years of James VI, played on viols as they were in the middle of the 16th century.  

The music will include church music (as it might have been heard in smaller gatherings), as well as more light-hearted dances and instrumental pieces by the best composers of the time, both from Scotland and further afield.   

You will hear small scale mass settings by Carver, Josquin and Byrd, more light-hearted instrumental music by Senfl, Robert White and others, as well as consort songs (secular and sacred) typical of small-scale music-making at court and in town households during the sixteenth century.  

Come and go as you please, and stay as long as you wish - we hope the music will help you enjoy even more the wonderful rooms in which they are playing. Arranged as part of Cappella Nova’s Coronation 1513 events
