24 June 2017: The cathedral choir of St Andrew's Cathedral, Aberdeen will be premiering my St Andrew's Mass for two choirs, joined by music director Prof Andrew Morrisson and soloists Ross Cumming, Sam Paul, Sarah LeBrocq and Kathleen Cronie, a fellow PhD student at Aberdeen University who speaks fluent Gaelic. I am extremely grateful to all of the performers for volunteering their time towards the performance of a work which has, in a way, summed up the first half of my PhD in composition.
This performance is part of the Diocese of Aberdeen and Orkney's annual Gaelic Eucharist, celebrated by Dean Emsley Nimmo, one of the few major Gaelic language events in the Northeast. You can read all about it in the Press and Journal here.
