NYCOS is releasing John Gardner’s setting of eight poems by Robert Burns, featuring the National Youth Choir of Scotland and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
The album was first recorded and later released in 1998 during the National Youth Choir of Scotland’s third year. In the organisation’s 25th Anniversary year, NYCOS celebrates the forgotten treasure from some of its first choir members for Burns Night.

The National Youth Choir of Scotland is most impressive, capturing the composer’s obvious affection for the poems he sets.
