Concert Details

Make this year an utterly memorable one by celebrating Christmas, rejoicing in music, and re-affirming the quintessential spirituality of the season with the SNJO and their special guests, Kurt Elling and Cappella Nova.

Spirit of Light is a celebration in music and song that combines the sacred and the secular in an illuminating new work composed by Tommy Smith as an extraordinary choral and orchestral jazz experience.

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 such as Rainer Maria Rilke, Norman MacCaig, Robert Frost, Franz Wright, Jim Helen and St. Francis of Assisi.

The celebrated jazz vocalist Kurt Elling, and ten voices of Cappella Nova will join the SNJO to perform this new music in some of Scotland’s most beautiful cathedrals.
