Scottish, early 20th century.

Provenance: Newington United Free Church, now the Queen's Hall, Clerk Street, Edinburgh

Notes: The Queen’s Hall has been at the heart of music making in Edinburgh since 1979 when, after a public appeal, the Church of Newington and St Leonards was bought and converted into a 900 seat concert hall . Since then it has become known internationally as the setting for the much loved Edinburgh International Festival Morning Concerts and an ideal space for chamber music.
