Edinburgh Renaissance Band
The Edinburgh Renaissance Band is a group of Edinburgh-based musicians specialising in the performance of music from the period 1200 - 1600. The Band has delighted audiences of all ages since its formation in 1973, playing Renaissance and Medieval music from many parts of Europe, including the important Scottish repertoire.
The Band is noted for the wide variety of instruments played, from the quiet viols, violins, lute, curtal and recorders, through the more assertive brass family with cornetti and sackbuts, to the ringing tones of the shawms. More unusual instruments may be expected – crumhorns, gemshorns and the occasional serpent have been spotted, along with a wide variety of percussion. The addition of voices makes this a uniquely interesting group.
Since its inception the Band's aim has been to present informative and well researched programmes with a characteristic blend of informality and musical authenticity - making "early music" easily accessible. Arranged as part of Cappella Nova’s Coronation 1513 events
