Lovesong in Harvest
Doctor, musician and composer Iain McDonald took a love story written 3,000 years ago and created a musical presentation for his wedding to Cora on 10th January 1976. This was performed on a number of occasions since including the 10th January 2016 in Stirling, Scotland. The images come from that performance.
Lovesong in Harvest is a setting of the biblical story of Ruth, for choir, soloists, orchestra and dance/drama. Its themes remain relevant today: a refugee is shown kindness and enduring friendship … and a foreigner unexpectedly finds love and acceptance in her adoptive country. This is a touching account of how loving relationships overcome adversity and bring hope for the future.
