Echoes and Traces presents eight new choral works, developed in response to one of Scotland’s oldest pieces of music, a 900-year-old plain-song fragment from Orkney that celebrates St Magnus: Nobilis Humilis.

The new works are written by eight of Scotland's most eminent composers: Sally Beamish, Rory Boyle, Stuart MacRae, Aidan O’Rourke, Ailie Robertson, Savourna Stevenson, Hanna Tuulikki and Matthew Whiteside. World-renowned choral group Cappella Nova, perform the new works, in one of the most significant Scottish cultural events in 2017.
