Don't forget to check what's happening during the time you are in Edinburgh. We found a handbells' concert for free at St. Giles' Church on the Friday we were in town. It was wonderful listening to the semi-religious music such as "Amazing Grace" and "It's a Gift to be Simple". They also played "Morning Has Broken" which was written to an old Scottish folk melody.St. Giles Church is famous for being the church of John Knox who was the leader of the Protestant Reformation and considered the founder of the Presbyterian Church in the mid-1500's. This was during the same time that Mary Queen of Scots reigned, a Catholic monarch and there was much talk of rebellion at this time.
