Scots song

author of text

Sir James MacMillan (b1959) is one of the UK’s greatest living composers; he lives and works in Scotland and his music is strongly influenced by the sounds of Scottish folksong and often inspired by the beautiful landscapes of his homeland. He wrote Scots song for us in 2019, for the wedding of our countertenor Patrick and his wife Ellie, by adapting an existing version for piano and voice which he wrote in 1991. The words are in the Scots language, by William Soutar (1898-1946), a Perthshire poet of the early 20th century. MacMillan’s melody for Scots song is something of a musical ‘signature’ and is used in several other choral and orchestral works.
