John Scott (1956-2015) was Organ Scholar at St John’s during the time when George Guest ran the Choir and thereafter retained a strong, fond relationship with the choir. Creator of the stars of night (2007) is composed to a text whose origins date back to a seventh-century plainsong hymn, and his warm arrangement retains this plainsong quality.
