Sonoro is one of the finest singing groups in the UK and for this late-night concert it presents a programme of music glued together by Michael Higgins’ organ compositions inspired by the choir’s last visit to the Festival and Orkney’s history and landscape.   Surrounding these instrumental interludes are choral reflections by many contemporary composers – all inspired by earlier works in the repertoire – that bring a meditative and reflective atmosphere to the peaceful calm of St Magnus Cathedral.
