The prestigious Two Moors Festival is now in its 18th year and with a stellar line up of world-class artists, outstanding music and breath-taking venues, the October festival is not to be missed. Created by John and Penny Adie, the festival brings a celebration of exceptional music to Exmoor and Dartmoor and surrounding areas.
The Two Moors Festival will showcase amazing artists as well as highlighting both Dartmoor and Exmoor’s heritage by hosting inspirational performances, talks, exhibitions, school workshops and masterclasses in beautiful and rural venues.
Performing at St Mary’s is the incredible, Thomas Trotter, who is hailed as one of the most brilliant organists in the world today.
Mr Trotter’s programme of music for the festival includes Widor’s famous Toccata, Ginastera’s Toccata written in 1947 and to finish, Thomas will play his own transcription of Rossini’s Overture to his opera, The Thieving Magpie – a piece that will involve speed and dexterity!

Saturday 9th March at 7.30pm
St Mary’s Church, Totnes
Totnes Early Music Society presents
Duo Dorado
A CELEBRATION of BACH
Some glorious music from the composer described in his day as ‘the Miracle of Leipzig’, From violin sonatas with basso continuo to solos for each instrument, this wide-ranging programme includes the great Sonata in A major for violin and keyboard, the beautiful G major Basso Continuo Sonata, and a highlight from The Art of Fugue.
We are thrilled to bring Hazel Brooks (baroque violin) and David Pollock (harpsichord) back to TEMS after a ten year gap. They have performed extensively in the UK and beyond, and their current project exploring 17th century English repertoire has led to some ground-breaking recordings, the latest being The Unknown Purcell for Chandos.

Saturday 27th April at 7.30pm
St Mary’s Church, Totnes
Totnes Early Music Society presents
Syrinx
BLAST FROM THE PAST
From the 14th to the 18th century, wind music could be heard everywhere from grand state occasions to the humblest village dance. Syrinx aim to recreate this impressive tradition playing bagpipes, shawms, dulcians, deutsche schalmei, baroque oboes and bassoon: their repertoire covers the rise of the professional wind band, with music from early anonymous masters, Dufay and Morley through to Handel and Telemann.
Syrinx received acclaim for their first album, The Saxon Alternative. Members play with leading period orchestras including the Academy of Ancient Music, The OAE, and the Akademie für Alte Musik, Berlin, and in ensembles such as I Fagiolini, Mediva, Blondel and Concentus VII.
