, Start Time: 22:00, End Time: 23:00 St Magnus Cathedral Broad Street, Kirkwall KW15 1NX

Ars Nova Copenhagen has an international reputation for performance of early and contemporary music. Led by the internationally renowned choral director Paul Hillier, here they explore a musical journey through the works of composers from northern lands to music from the south and in particular Spain. From the American composer Julia Wolfe’s Psalm Setting through Maxwell Davies’s and Nicolson’s settings of Orkney poets Mackay Brown and Robert Rendall to the splendid renaissance counterpoint of Victoria the fine singers of Ars Nova bring the day to a close in the warm acoustic of St Magnus Cathedral.
