The annual candlelit concert in St. Giles Cathedral forms part of the Edinburgh's Hogmanay celebrations.

This year’s concert captures the splendour of the courts of Versailles with Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s Te Deum, famous for its iconic opening fanfare. The Baroque theme continues with J.S. Bach’s cantata for the last Sunday of the year, Gottlob! Nun geht das jahr zu Ende BWV 28, and the concert concludes with festive exuberance in Bach’s Magnificat.
