FORMER bishop of Edinburgh Richard Holloway is to take part in the launch of a Christmas album by an amateur choir.
The release party for Bright Star by Cadenza aims to raise funds for HIV and Hepatitis C charity Waverley Care.
Mr Holloway said: “As a long-term supporter of Waverley Care, I am delighted to be participating in this event to launch Bright Star and welcome the opportunity to read some inspirational poems to complement this fascinating collection.”
A number of the composers will be in attendance, including Ken Johnston, John Hearne and Ben Parry, co-founder of The Dunedin Consort, whose carol gives its name to the title of the CD.
Renowned Christmas music composer John Rutter said: “Cadenza have truly captured a new Christmas spirit.”
The launch takes place at St Peter’s Church, Lutton Place, on Friday, November 16 at 7pm.
