RIVERS OF RUNNING GOLD. THE SUN, THE SUN!

September 10, 2023 → 7:30 pm8:30 pm

St Magnus Cathedral, Kirkwall

See the blazing light and churning fire of the Sun’s surface and hear music for the cosmos from two composers whose works blend electronic sounds with instruments and voices to create work of elemental power and ethereal beauty.

The programme features Stuart MacRae’s Magnus, Noble Martyr and his Incarnadine, along with Michael Oliva’s Threnody and his Music of the Spheres (for which Graham Hourie, helped by Cathleen Hourie, will play the Cathedral bell).

With the Mayfield Singers, Ewan Robertson (alto and bass flute), Valerie Webster and Hannah Marshall (cellos), and Paisley Abbey organist George McPhee, and narration by solar physicist Prof. Robert Walsh.

Tickets £10 & £8 can be booked through this LINK.
