The Edinburgh University Renaissance Singers (EURS) is a vibrant and dynamic choir specialising in early music. EURS has a long history at the University, beginning in the mid-60s as an early music group affiliated with the Music Society at Edinburgh and holding its first public performances in 1967-68.
The choir’s recent repertoire includes works by Byrd, Handl, Victoria, Tallis and Palestrina to name but a few. One of three auditioned choirs at the university, at present the choir consists of a diverse group of approximately 30 members made up of staff and students from the University as well as residents from the wider Edinburgh community.
Each year the choir embarks on an annual tour, most recently to Shetland and Orkney. Other recent destinations including Portugal, Greece, Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Cyprus, France, Switzerland, Germany, the Scottish Highlands, Estonia and Spain. EURS has been involved in a number of exciting opportunities in recent years, including being featured on Songs of Praise, and regularly mounts reconstructions of major ceremonial occasions in collaboration with members of the Scottish Gabrieli Ensemble and the Squair Mile Consort, performing on period instruments.
