The resurvey of Wandel and Lamington Parish

Media Releases

Celebrating St Andrew's House

Media Releases

The gracious and commanding presence of St Andrew’s House has now distinguished Edinburgh’s skyline for 70 years – but for three decades it was the most contentious new build in Scotland. Designed by Thomas S Tait of Paisley, St Andrew’s House is now recognised as a work of art, adorned with fine carving by Sir W Reid Dick, Alexander Carrick and Phyllis Bone and with outstanding bronze doors by Walter Gilbert. Internally the Art Deco refinement continues in the streamlined interiors, not least in the fine stairs, the tailored conference rooms and the walnut-panelled ‘Secretary of State’s’ room.

If this is the case, as experts believe, the music could have been played on instruments such as harps, viols, fiddles and lutes. However, evidence from Wales from later in the century, suggests that the composition may have part of the home-grown harp tradition.
