Another World Premiere

Members of the choir were delighted to be asked to sing at the nuptial mass for the wedding of Sir James Macmillan’s son and his bride in Cumnock on Saturday 18 August. This marked a further step in our long-standing association with the composer and his works. In addition to his St Anne’s Mass setting and So Deep (a version of Burns’ ‘My love is like a red, red rose’), we were thrilled to perform two world premieres of new pieces by Sir James, including the  glorious ‘Behold, you are beautiful my love’, a setting of words from the Song of Solomon. Despite the rather dreich weather, the event was a joyous occasion, much enjoyed by all – not least on account of the musical feast!
