Christmas 2017! – a fantastic seasonal event…
Cappella Nova collaborates with the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra and celebrated jazz vocalist Kurt Elling in Spirit of Light: a celebration in music and song that combines the sacred and the secular in an illuminating new work composed by Tommy Smith.
Inspired by the seasonal iconography of the Star, Three Kings, Christmas Night, Winter Snow and the dawning of Christmas Day, it features settings of poetry by eminently humanitarian writers, Rainer Maria Rilke, Norman MacCaig, Robert Frost, Franz Wright, Jim Heylen and St. Francis of Assisi.
Friday 15 December in Glasgow, Saturday 16 December in Aberdeen, Sunday 17 December in Edinburgh.
