As winter thickens and darkness descends, let this be our shining gift to you: a smorgasboard of glittering Renaissance, Baroque, 20th- and 21st-century jewels to ring and resonate through the night.

Scottish Ensemble's much-loved advent tour pairs glowing candles and atmospheric venues with music of hidden depths, spiritual solace, meditative reflection and warm midwinter comfort.

Always delivering a few extra gifts, this year the string orchestra will be joined by seven singers from the dynamic, inimitable vocal ensemble I Fagiolini, creating a mesmerising evening of sound and light.
