At the heart of the concert is Eddie McGuire's work, originally commissioned by the Festival, representing the ideas of stone circles with
reels, jigs and airs whilst Sally Beamish re-imagines a folk tune from Shetland in a haunting piece for string orchestra. Orkney's own Jennifer Wrigley's An Air for Dr John Rae gets its first orchestral outing and the programme opens with Peter Warlock's re-invention for a modern age of renaissance dance styles.
