The go-to guide for early music




Laudonia was born out of a passion to raise the standard of music. To bring it back to its glory days. To go back over 400 years. To create a future for music and musicians that will be celebrated for generations. Through performances, master classes and workshops Laudonia's ambition is to bring Early Music and New Music to those who already enjoy it and to new listeners who will see the renaissance it created so long ago.

The Grand Tour
Scottish soprano and co-founder of Laudonia, Susan Hamilton is joined by some of Europe’s leading exponents in the world of baroque music to bring you an exciting programme inspired by Sir John Clerk of Penicuik’s Grand Tour in the 1690s. Following his route through Europe, we have devised an exciting and eclectic programme for soprano, trumpet, strings and bass continuo, based around the music he may have heard on his travels and written by composers he met, some of whom he studied with on his journey. This includes Clerk’s emotional cantata - Leo Scotiae Irritatus, Corelli’s passionate violin sonata in D minor - La Follia and the ethereal concerto for voice, trumpet and strings by Rosenmüller - O Felicissimus Paradysi.
