A debut live performance of Stuart MacRae’s acclaimed new Delphian Records album ‘Earth, thy cold is keen’, featuring mezzo soprano Lotte Betts-Dean and string duo Sequoia.


Weaving together Scottish folk, medieval and modern influences with texts from the middle ages to the present day, Stuart MacRae’s recent album Earth, thy cold is keen released on Delphian Records, has been universally praised by critics and audiences for its beguiling, intimate exploration of themes of life, death and nature. Featuring mesmerising singing from Australian mezzo-soprano Lotte Betts-Dean, striking and delicate playing from Scottish string duo Sequoia, and harmonium from the composer, in this concert music from the album will be heard live for the very first time, interspersed with Scottish folk music from Sequoia.

‘The album conjures an aural landscape steeped in folk music and medieval lyric, but the result is entirely distinctive and modern… This is music for slow, close listening, beautifully performed’ The Guardian

The performance will last approximately 1 hour, without an interval.
